Here is a listing of just a few of the things we currently need help with. If you have any skills or ideas not mentioned here, please reach out!  

We can definitely use any help you have to offer and are open to having input from everyone. In addition to the jobs listed below, we are always looking for help with grant writing, fundraising events, costuming, development, photography, social media, and web design.

  • Cleaning and Organizing

    With a new and very busy studio space there's always something to do! You can lend a hand with cleaning or helping us organize our dance shoes and supplies. There's always a new project that we would love help with.

  • In-Person Class Assistants

    Are you great with kids and/or have a dance background? We always need additional classroom support to make sure our teachers are fully supported and all the kids are receiving the attention they need. Assist in a younger children's class to help with classroom management, or if you have dance training lend your skills to one of our older, more advanced classes.

  • Virtual Classroom Assistants

    In order to provide a safe online environment and make sure our zoom classes run smoothly, we need to have an assistant present in each class. This assistant should be very comfortable with zoom. Bilingual is a plus, in case communication with Spanish speaking parents is needed.

  • Video Production

    We suddenly find ourselves in a virtual world, even when it comes to the performing arts. We're great at dance and choreography, but we could use a lot of help putting that into a virtual format in a creative way.

  • Fundraising

    Help us raise money to support this important program. Do you love planning events? Or maybe you have skills that can lend themselves to fundraisers like decorating, crafts, baking, etc. Do you have ideas for different ways we can get the community involved to support the program? We need you!

  • Updating Website Content

    Are you skilled at editing websites? We could definiltey use your help keeping our information current!

  • Photographers and Videographers

    We are always looking for people to help us document our classes, performances and events. Volunteer your skills as a photographer or videographer and help us share the memory!

  • Drivers with Cars

    Sometimes we need help transporting our costumes and other items to an event or performance. Support us by donating your time (and vehicle!) to help us get everything needed to our location.
