Two individuals face one another in conversation

Our amazing volunteers assist with programming by acting on one or more of our committees. Volunteers meet approximately once per month via zoom and assist with planning events and programming intiatives. Read the descriptions below to find out more about the different committees you can serve on.

Archive: Dance history enthusiasts, this is for you! Help us research and record the history of Atlanta dance. This committee gathers oral histories from longtime members of the Atlanta dance community over the next year, as well as determining the overall scope and direction of the process of developing an archive of other materials related to the history of dance in Atlanta.

Community Engagement: Bring the community together to network and gather. Our potluck mixers have been a hit and include an elevator pitch forum, clothing swaps, and lots of food! The community committee has also hosted a virtual milonga for the Dance The Vote campaign and a National Water Dance performance.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: This committee aims to assess and address the needs of the Atlanta dance community as it relates to equitable representation. They are currently working on an interview series within our quarterly digital newsletter, Promenade, which seeks to listen and learn about some of the many dance artists and organizations that make up our community.

Education and Research: Develop collaboration and mentoring within the Atlanta dance community and create educational opportunities to grow. This team created the AM Collaborative program. For the 2020-21 season, A.M. Collaborative matched 20+ artists of different disciplines together in a creative process. You can watch this last cohort project here.

Production: DanceATL Tech Talks are production and design workshops that provide a platform for experts in the field to share their knowledge and an opportunity for members of the Atlanta dance community to learn about production and design for dance and performing arts. Past tech talk topics have included general production process, lighting design, Q-lab, and stage management.

Writing: Promenade features local artists and professionals, their artistic contributions to the community and their perspectives on dance in Atlanta. The committee is also collaborating with ArtsATL.

Why volunteer with us? Read about some of our volunteers’ experience:

"I love the people I’ve met, and I love being able to use my professional skill sets for something I love (dance!)" -Loren McFalls, community and production committees

"My favorite part about being a volunteer with DanceATL is the community environment. I came to my first writing committee meeting and knew no one except for the Operations Manager but I immediately felt right at home and like my opinion and ideas were valid. DanceATL is incredibly nurturing and inviting...Volunteering at DanceATL has given me a community of fiercely passionate individuals, who like me, are looking to make a difference and shape the dance world." -Ashley Gibson, writing committee

"Volunteering is important because it is a vehicle for people to strengthen their communities through actions that also help them connect with other individuals who share their passions." -Julie Baggenstoss, writing committee

"The Atlanta arts community in general is largely fueled by passion. ... It’s the independent artists and niche organizations- the self-starters- who give this city its creative drive and dynamism. It’s important for the greater community to know who they are and what they are contributing to the arts ecosystem."- Cynthia Perry, writing committee
