Dancing Volunteers

What does it mean to be a dancing volunteer?



Your Role


Your role as a Dancing Volunteer is to:


  • Build strong relationships with 2 - 3 dancers in the class

  • Build good relationships with all dancers in the class

  • Dance alongside the dancers, paying attention to their needs. E.g Do they need an adjustment to a dance move, do they need a drink, are they feeling sick/tired

  • Assist the teacher with creating a great class atmosphere, e.g encouraging the dancers to be quiet whilst the teacher is talking, cheering and clapping when the class has achieved something.

  • Assist the teacher with translating the dance moves, e.g showing the dancer the sequence.

  • Be the eyes of the teacher in the class, let them know if any incidents are occurring that they may not have noticed.

  • Chat with the dancers at any down times e.g drinks break, before class or after class.

  • Bring your best good vibes to every class and spread that to the dancers

  • Bring your funkiest moves to every class and let your inner dancer shine!

All our dancing volunteers are required to complete a quick 10 minute application process, helping us to get to know you a little better and learning more about your motivations for volunteering.

Step 2

All applicants will participate in a short 10 minute phone interview. We'll run you through our expecations for volunteers, learn more about what you want to get out of the experience and answer any questions you may have.
