DanceChance Program
Volunteers work directly with 3rd and 4th grade DanceChance students helping them prepare for class, supervising educational activities, coordinating transportation issues, and administrative tasks related to the program. Volunteers are needed in Seattle at the Phelps Center on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays from 10:45 am–12:45 pm. Volunteers should have experience with children, as well as an interest in working with students from diverse backgrounds. Volunteers should also be flexible and able to guide students in a positive and constructive manner.

If you are interested in this rewarding opportunity, please contact Jennifer McLain, DanceChance Manager, at 206.441.2435 ext. 3516 or dancechance@pnb.org.

Amusements Gift Shop
The gift shop is open for all performances of Pacific Northwest Ballet (and Seattle Opera). Each performance requires approximately 8 volunteers to manage the registers and help patrons of the ballet find that perfect gift or souvenir. Our volunteers are able to see the ballet on the night they work. You must be able to stand for a long period of time and be comfortable interacting with customers, and handling cash. No experience is required, and all ages/backgrounds/ability levels are welcome! Working more performances lets volunteers store up some tickets to bring friends and family with them to future ballets!

If you are interested in this rewarding opportunity, please contact Laura C. Hall, Volunteer Coordinator at volunteers@amusementsgiftshop.com.
