BPG Intern

BPG Summer 2011 Intern, Joshua Stansbury

Joshua Stansbury arrived to New York City in May 2011 to participate in a unique internship experience with BPG. Stansbury recently completed a double major in Dance and Applied Physiology and Kinesiology with a specialization in Fitness and Wellness at the University of Florida. He is a certified Pilates Mat Instructor and has worked at the University of Florida as a Pilates Instructor and Fitness Supervisor.

Throughout July Josh taught a Pilates and Somatic Techniques class to BPGers on Tuesdays at the Mark Morris Dance Center. His class adapts Joseph Pilates floor work into a chair and standing, and includes other body work that he has worked with during college.

Besides teaching for BPG, Josh’s internship duties included attending all BPG classes, updating contact information, shadowing neurologists at SUNY Downstate, and assisting with grant writing. During his internship with BPG Josh worked professionally as a dancer for the choreographer Neta Pulvermacher in her 17 member company. Pulvermacher premiered 2280 Pints! at Dance Theatre Workshop this May, a piece that was well received. To see the review of 2,280 Pints! by The New York Times go to: (NYT)
