The FSU Department of Art Education is proud to announce that Arts Administration Master’s student Tiffany Patrick was awarded a Joffrey Ballet School Arts Administration Intern Position for summer 2016!
“The internship is part of my program’s curriculum. As an arts administration student, I have to complete 9 internship credit hours, which translates to 405 hours of work. My summer internship will be completed in 11 weeks, from May 30-Aug. 14 in NYC. Although my background is in the visual arts (my bachelor’s is in Art History), since coming to FSU I have discovered that I can explore other artistic fields with an Arts Administration Master’s degree. This led me to consider an internship at ballet companies and performing arts centers. Last semester I did my service- learning for my grant writing class at the Tallahassee Ballet, which inspired me to continue working in the dance world. It is my hope that the Joffrey Ballet School internship will propel me towards a career in executive-level management of an arts organization.”
Founded in 1953, The Joffrey Ballet School established a unique curriculum based on the fusion of multiple dance styles that encapsulate the American style of dance training. Dancers are trained in Jazz, Modern, Contemporary, Hip-Hop, Character, and more. The versatility of styles and levels the school offers are a culmination of the ideals and values conceived by Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino, the founders of the school. With more than 50 years of operation, the Joffrey Ballet School remains on the forefront of American dance education, and is still the only ballet school in New York City that offers a well-rounded dance curriculum.
Tiffany was also recently awarded the Marylou & Ernistine Kuhn Scholarship, a 2016-2017 Departmental College Scholarship, on March 22, 2016, at the FSU College Awards Reception.
The Department of Art Education would like to congratulate Tiffany Patrick on all of her achievements.
