Volunteers play a key role AYBC, providing our organization with invaluable services. The Alabama Youth Ballet Guild is in charge of volunteers, fundraising activities, hosting events and our main support group.
We offer a wide variety of opportunities for those interested in volunteering, and actively seek a volunteer base with a full range of skills, interests, and schedules. Our volunteer coordinator will work with you to identify volunteer activities that work best for you, and at the same time, contribute significantly to our organization.
We are currently looking for volunteers to usher at performances of Dessertissements, Spring Dance Concert in May and to organize the new annual AYBC Banquet. If you are interested, please call Sabrina Murray at (205) 260-4641(205) 260-4641 or email her at Sabrina@themurrays.org.
Other opportunities are offered in the following areas.
Youth Ballet Program
Our productions benefit from volunteers involved in a number of areas. Help is needed in carpentry, scene painting, costuming, and props. Backstage volunteers assist with makeup hairstyling, costuming, and chaperoning young dancers. All public performances require ushers to seat patrons, take tickets, and hand out programs. Volunteers are also needed to serve as servers and hostesses at performances taking place at Grebel Center for Dance. Volunteers may be asked to assist with ticket sales in the box office and other miscellaneous front-of-house responsibilities.
We welcome clerical assistance of every type. Volunteers are needed to help with phones, mailings, word processing, and filing.
Marketing involves an ongoing effort to bring exposure to company performances and the school. In the future, we hope to have volunteers to form marketing teams for specific productions, executing formal plans aimed at increasing ticket sales. Volunteers are needed for selling ad space in programs, poster and flyer distribution, and other activities. In addition, volunteers play a key part in expanding our marketing network by providing contacts for sponsorships, group sales, and more.
The Ballet Boutique is our own traveling gift and concessions shop that is administered exclusively by volunteers. People are needed to participate in retail planning, buying, and selling.
AYBG hosts an array of special events throughout the year including opening night celebrations and fund-raisers. Among the many volunteer opportunities are event sponsorship, event planning, and mailing coordination.
