Dance/NYC’s events and programs thrive because of the enthusiastic volunteers who share the organization’s commitment for promoting the knowledge, appreciation, practice, and performance of dance in the New York City metropolitan area. Dance/NYC welcomes volunteers as integral members of its team and seeks to create meaningful opportunities that match their interests and skill sets. By growing a network of volunteers, we aim to build current and future leaders and strengthen their collective voice for dance.

Dance/NYC values justice, equity, inclusion, and diversity at all levels of its organization, including its Board, committees, task forces, and staff. Diversity in this context refers to groups and individuals identified by, for instance, race, color, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, status, religion, national origin, marital or partnership status, ancestry, political belief or activity, or status as a veteran. To foster the values of justice, equity, inclusion, and diversity, Dance/NYC seeks participation on its Board, committees, task forces, and staff from individuals who share and hold these values and reflect the diversity of the metropolitan New York City area, with a focus on majority African, Latina/o/x, Asian, Arab, and Native American (ALAANA) participation and disability and immigrant representation. (According to Census data, the New York City population is approximately 77% ALAANA, 10% disabled, and 37% foreign-born. Source: US Census Bureau American FactFinder 2011–2015 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates.)
