Support dance by volunteering your skills and talents.

Are you passionate about the arts and interested in supporting your local dance community? Come join us and support BC dance as a volunteer! Volunteers have the opportunity to learn about exciting initiatives for dance, gain experience with a non-profit arts organization and make connections with artists and other arts advocates in the community.

A Dance Centre volunteer has great communication & organization skills, is punctual, responsible, reliable, engaged, friendly, and enjoys working with the public. Ideally, volunteers would be able to commit to a minimum 5 shifts during the season.
