I'd like to take a minute to introduce the first two of our four new interns to you. For the past eleven years I have been working with the Natick High School Drama program (along side Monkeyhouse supporters Margaret Hagemeister, Zach Galvin and Benjamin Rogers. Monkeyhouse loves NHS!) as choreographer. I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of incredible young artists, many of whom have gone on to do amazing things. (Monkeyhouse guest artists Sarah Feinberg and Sarah Friswell and C2C intern Sarah Grace all graced the NHS stage during their high school careers!)
This year marks the fourth year of working with seniors Katelyn Alcott and David Makransky. When they both expressed interest in pursuing the arts after high school we came up with an internship program that would give them the opportunity to study dance a bit more extensively and to gain some arts administration knowledge and first hand experience along the way. They are both exceptional people and I can't wait to see what sort of magic they being into the world. In the meantime, they have made a funny little interview video for you to learn a little more about them!
