Summary of Internship

Being a intern at Bergen PAC allows me to see some of the work that is done in preparation for a show at the Performing Arts Center, or a class at the Performing Arts School. 95% of my intern was done in the Performing Art School and not the actual center. Some of my task as an intern includes making phone calls, street marketing, creating discount flyers, stuffing envelopes and doing research. Iíve also looked up research or statistic for social media relating to dance, music and theatre education that states why it is important to participate in those activities. I also help find counselors for Bergen PAC summer camp program by contacting schools who have students who are interested in getting community service hours by being a camp counselor.
