Dance Volunteers travel to Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, or Nicaragua to teach modern dance workshops, take world dance classes conducted by our international community alliances, and participate in public performances that include student choreography.

Dance Volunteers are encouraged to dig deeper into their relationship with dance as they conduct dance workshops and performances in orphanages, migrant safe homes, centers for HIV+ children, hospitals, grade schools, retirement homes, and more.

High-level college-aged dance students + emerging dance professionals are invited to participate in this program.

A video reel is required to be considered for this opportunity.
