Teaching Artist Internships at Factory Street Studio

Faculty Street Studio students

The School of Dance offers opportunities for students to gain professional development through teaching artist internships at a local non-profit partner, Factory Street Studio. Interning teachers gain hands-on experience in dance education, arts administration, and choreography for children and teens in a community setting, while working with one of the only non-competitive dance studios in the state, promoting technique, self-esteem, personal growth, and a cooperative spirit in Southeast Ohio.

Factory Street Studio:
Factory Street Studio is a non-profit dance studio founded in 1978 by two Ohio University graduates. A recipient of multiple Ohio Arts Council Grants, Factory Street Studio offers a curriculum that is capable of producing intelligent and expressive dancers with strong technical foundations and producing an avid dance audience with well-trained eyes for qualitative expression and technique.

" I would absolutely recommend this internship to future dance students because it really gives a better sense of what it's like being a teacher. I was thrown into this internship at an interesting time (Fall 2020) where there was not only a huge learning curve for me learning to become a teacher, but also navigating teaching within a pandemic. The community within the studio is incredible and being there feels like having a second family. "—Paige Campbell, Dance BFA '22
