BodyStories Teresa Fellion Dance Winter/Spring 2021 Internship Stephi Nossen


BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance is an NYC-based non-profit contemporary dance company, officially formed in 2011, and active with individual projects since 2004. We create original dance works in collaboration with composers and artists of all disciplines, and have performed across the continental United States, Cameroon, Dubai, and in Europe at venues such as Jazz at Lincoln Center, Bryant Park Summerstage, Baryshnikov Arts Center, ICA Boston, Gibney Dance Center, ENTPE Lyon, France, with the rock band Phish, and others. We work very closely with our Musical Director, John Yannelli, to make each BodyStories performance a unique sensory experience, upholding our mission to create profound emotional responses for our audiences. In addition to creating and performing innovative works, our company is committed to connecting with diverse populations through our extensive dance education programs and community engagement workshops, as well as maintaining a stable business model to sustain our work. We collectively speak nine languages and research, perform, and collaborate with artists from five continents. We have launched a virtual dance education program and several online performance programs, and are continuing to develop these offerings.

Our internships have traditionally involved a combination of remote and in-person work. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we have temporarily shifted to an entirely remote work environment. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we will maintain our remote format until it is safe to work in-person again. Regardless of format, our internships are highly interactive and thorough; interns will receive plenty of hands-on experience in arts management, marketing, and development during working sessions, special events, mentoring, and meetings.


Please submit a resume and cover letter to Leigh Ann Gann at by December 30th. 

Positions are rolling and begin anytime from early December 2020 through late January 2021. Upon completion of the internship program, Interns receive a stipend and are eligible for course credit.
