About the Company
Based in LA, Heat Dance was founded on the belief that people are happier and healthier when they have rich experiences in movement and sensory input (ie. Dance, fitness, social experiences). We exist as an app and as brick & mortar studios: Heat provides an interactive dance community and education platform online, inspired by the immersive dance experiences we deliver daily in our state-of-the-art studios—part dance class, part exercise, part immersive theatre; our goal is to create a happier, healthier society through dance and technology. Live your best life as your true self at HEAT DANCE!
Heat Dance is currently seeking a Graphic Design intern to join our marketing team who is self-motivated and has a passion for entertainment, music/dance, and media. Our ideal candidate is someone who has experience gaining a large number of online followers and creating consistently branded, high-quality social media content. The ideal candidate is skilled in Photoshop, InDesign, and a variety of mobile photo editing apps, and is thoughtfully customer focused when interacting with online communities and building relationships.
Our intern will work under the Creative Director and with the marketing team to create high-quality material (including potentially blending videos & photos from our production team, as well as self-generated graphics, behind-the-scenes shoots, and other new ideas). Our intern should feel right at home in the Adobe Creative Cloud and throwing some text, filters, and original design content on an image should be second nature for our intern. As a creative company at heart, our design aesthetic is incredibly important to us and maintaining a consistently high-quality brand image. We’re looking to bring great candidates into our team and make them even better!
