Darby’s Dancers Volunteer Coaches

Teen or adult volunteers will be in some of our Darby’s Dancers classes to work with and offer support for the students. The volunteer aspect is an integral aspect of the organization. The special needs dancers may be able to perform the dance steps independently, or they may need more assistance depending on their disability.  The volunteer coach helps the dancer by modeling the dance steps and assisting them in following directions. Read more about the volunteer opportunity HERE.
