Community Involvement

One of the most satisfying, fun, and productive ways to unite is volunteering for community service projects. Volunteerism also sets a good example and helps the community.

Reasons to Get Involved

  • It feels good. The satisfaction and pride that come from helping others are important reasons to volunteer. When you commit your time and effort to an organization or a cause you feel strongly about, the feeling of fulfillment can be endless.
  • It strengthens your community. Organizations and agencies that use volunteers are providing important services at low or no cost to those who need them. When a community is doing well as a whole, its individuals are better off, too.
  • It can strengthen your family. Volunteering is a great way  to have fun and feel closer.  (For example, sharing our talent by performing, making and donating gift baskets to care facilities for the elderly around the holidays).
  • What Our Dancer’s Can Learn From Volunteering

    Once  volunteering begins, it can become part of a Dancers life — something they might just expect and want to do.

    It can teach them:

    • A sense of responsibility. By volunteering, kids and teens learn what it means to make and keep a commitment. They learn how to be on time for a job, do their best, and be proud of the results. But they also learn that, ultimately, we’re all responsible for the well-being of our communities.
    • That one Dancer can make a difference. A wonderful, empowering message for our Dancers is that they’re important enough to have an impact on someone or something else.
    • The benefit of sacrifice. By giving up a toy to a less fortunate child, a Dancer learns that sometimes it’s good to sacrifice. Cutting back on recreation time to help clean up a beach tells kids that there are important things besides ourselves and our immediate needs.
    • Some of the ways Dancer’s Workshop has been involved and or ways we would like to become involved are listed: Local parades, Benefit performances (St. Clair Shores Cops for Kids, Wigs for Kids, Relay for Life), Participate in 4th of July celebrations, churches, VFW and Am vets post, special Holiday performances at Nursing Homes, Hospitals and Senior Centers, performance at local Mall to support a community event, create and perform choreography to share our love for dance during National Dance week to inspire kids of all ages to be active anddance like no one is watching. Collect food items to be donated to local churches during the holidays and in times of need.

If you know of a way we can help out a community and/or a good cause please contact the studio at 586 777-3290. We will return your call.
