We offer life changing programs that bring girls of all backgrounds and abilities together to use their unique experiences in the collective creation of dance works. Creating together allows the girls to have a voice, develop empathy, break stereotypes, discover and explore their creativity and practice leadership. We extend our reach into the community through partnerships with schools and organizations and by creating and distributing resources that focus on creative exploration and community building. We offer workshops for social workers and educators so that they may develop the skills they need to build more connected communities through dance.

Volunteer Opportunities

Organization: Dandelion Dance
The brand-new Dandelion Dance™ Arts Connection program is looking for a team of womxn volunteers to drop off weekly Imaginarium Kits to our girls! Our Imaginarium Kits provide fun, age-appropriate arts activities that girls ages 6-11 can do at home. The Arts Connection program enables girls to go on their very own creative adventure every week for six weeks. The kits are FREE and include all necessary materials.

Our volunteers deliver the kits, connect with our girls, and help them feel excited about the prospect of each week’s creative journey. (Due to COVID-19, volunteers and participants will meet OUTSIDE participant homes. For deliveries to apartments, our volunteers will remain in the lobby or the hallway.)

Volunteers must be available to deliver kits at the same time each week (weekday evening or weekend) for six weeks, at minimum. If the role is a good fit, we continue to match volunteers with new program participants, usually in six-week chunks of time.

Volunteers attend a mandatory training session before starting; next session is Sunday, November 29 from 1-3 pm.
