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 diversity, inclusion, and equity at all levels of its organization, including its volunteers. 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 equity and inclusion, Dance/NYC seeks participation from individuals who share and hold these values and reflect such diversity.
