Thanks for clicking through to our volunteering page!

As you may know, USA Dance is an all-volunteer national organization. At the local level, chapter volunteers host social dances; organize Senior Outreach performances; connect schools to ballroom dance instruction through our K-12 program; plan and host an annual Showcase; and field volunteer teams to various community fundraisers, performances, and more.

Every task undertaken at the local level is accomplished by an unpaid volunteer. If there are particular services that you think your chapter should provide, ask us about setting up a committee! We would really love to do more, but man-hours are the currency we have the least of.

Hosting social dances is key to the USA Dance community. Every dance needs people to help set up, man the front desk, serve as dance hosts, purchase and deliver food and water, perform, and clean up. Our current chapter policy is to offer free admission to up to ten volunteers per event. In order to ensure that we can actually carry out our events, we need our volunteers to be confirmed in advance.

USADLAC will continue its policy of offering free admission for up to ten volunteers at each Chapter dance event. In order to receive free admission, volunteers must commit in advance and sign in on the Volunteer log at front desk of event; volunteers not on the log will not receive free admission. A single Volunteer log will cover all dance event volunteers: setup, front desk, hosts, and closing.

If you are interested in volunteering, contact us using our general mailbox: usadancela (at) gmail (dot) com.

Please mark your calendars with the upcoming USA Dance scheduled events, and let us know if you think you can help. We will be happy to provide you with information about our procedures. We do our best to ensure that volunteers have ample time to enjoy our events, even when they're on duty. Contact any Board member for more information.

There are many other ways to volunteer with USA Dance. These can be as complex as program design or as simple as printing and distributing flyers for our events. We need YOUR help to make our chapter's events bigger and better!
