Dance Teacher Volunteer
Volunteer opportunities for dancers look great not only on your resume, but they also provide invaluable experience working in dance teaching and performance from many angles.
There are many different types of volunteer opportunities for dancers; the most commonly chosen volunteer activities are teaching beginner to dance and assistant teacher help, video photographer, sound equipment operator, working at classroom as receptionist or ticket sales agents. It all depends on what is available in your area and what it is that you would like to gain from your time volunteering.
Weekly Volunteer Activities
A little research of the dance schools in your area should reveal a few possibilities for volunteering options specifically for dancers. For example, many studios offer an exchange situation where you are responsible for helping a senior teacher teach youth dance classes or you are responsible for answering the phone two times a week. In many cases, you will be rewarded for such services by being granted free dance lessons at the school. Free dance lessons is not the only benefit though; whether you call it volunteer work or simply 'work', it will look good on your resume as well as getting you tuition-free classes.
Another great way to get involved in the performing arts community is to volunteer at area dance classroom. Dance classrooms are almost always looking for assistant dance teacher and other types of helpers. Whether you help backstage with the sound equipment department or you help people registration, you'll be gaining valuable experience inside the dance classroom. Many performers find it fun to do this kind of 'behind-the-scenes' work, and it certainly gives one a better overall view of how the dance classroom operates from front door to class ending procedure. Again the perks are multifold: you get to join different kind of dance classes and watching show for free, as well as putting the experience on your resume.
