Youth Mentors for Darby's Dancers at UDA

Spread the word and tell your dance friends! This fall, Darby's Dancers a Special Needs Dance Program, is coming to UDA! We are now looking for youth mentors/buddies to partner with these special children for the 2017-2018 dance season!

This fall UDA will be modifying our Special Needs Dance Program to partner with, "Darby’s Dancers", a non-profit organization founded by the parents of Darby Jones of Huntsville, Alabama. Darby’s Dancers provides an opportunity for Special Needs Children to participate in the performing arts through dance education.

Darby's Dancers, Special Needs Dance Classes will be taught by a new Special Needs Director, Ashlyn McBride and held at UDA South Jordan location. Volunteer dance instructors will be selected through an application and interview process. These dance instructors will mentor one special needs child throughout the dance year; attending and assisting them in their weekly dance class, attending minimal outside of class activities and participating in a special recital number with their special need buddy! All positions held within our Special Needs Program are volunteer positions. Charitable contributions will provide dance classes, supplies, costumes and activities to special needs dancers at no cost to their families.

If you have a dancer who is interested in participating in this program next year, we promise this will be an experience of a lifetime! Volunteer teachers must have at least two years of dance experience and be in the 7th-12th grade for the 2017-18 school year. Attached is a link to the application that must be filled out. You can also find applications at both UDA locations at the Customer Service desk. Applications are due July 5th.
