Dance Ontario Youth Board — Call for Applicants

In Call to Artists on December 7, 2010 by danceumbrella

To All members of the Ontario Dance Community (Teachers, Dancers, Choreographers, Studio Owners, Company Directors)

Do you know a young dancer between the ages of 12 and 19 who is passionate about dance, passionate about dance in their communities and would like to make an impact on Dance in Ontario?

The Dance Ontario Youth Board is seeking up to 12 new members to represent the next generation of dancers in Ontario and work on such projects as International Dance Day at Pearson International Airport, DOYB Annual Youth Show Case, Dance Ontario Conference, establishing and developing connections between their dance programs, schools, studios, regions and the larger dance community and many other projects.

At Dance Ontario we have always felt that it is important to look towards our Youth and provide them with opportunities to get involved and to share with us their wants and needs, goals, dreams and ambitions so that we can help them better prepare for a career in our industry. We would like to give them that opportunity by becoming a board member of Dance Ontario Youth Board.

We think it is important that membership be comprised of a diverse cross section of dancers trained and/or specialized in a variety of dance forms and who represent several different regions. We are seeking dancers who are dedicated, responsible, have a strong work ethic, are able to complete tasks assigned to them in a timely manner and are able to commit to a 1 year term commencing January 2011. The Youth Board will meet once a month on Saturdays in and around Toronto. The final dates, times and location of meetings will be confirmed once board members are selected.

This is a wonderful opportunity for our young dancers. Their time spent working on the Board and organizing events counts towards their extracurricular activities and community involvement. The experience and skills gained will be a great asset for future resumes, jobs and scholarship purposes.

So if you know a young dancer who would be a great candidate for our youth board please refer them and forward them this package as soon as possible as the deadline for applications is Friday, December 17th, 2010.
