Details of the Charity:

Dance Umbrella’s mission is to celebrate 21st century choreography. We do so enthusiastically and collaboratively through an annual international London festival, by developing choreographic talent and through creative learning. Our aim is to entice audiences, nurture artists, and stimulate interest in the power of the body in motion.

Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

We are looking for friendly and motivated volunteers with an interest in live performance or event management to help steward and create wonderful experiences for our audiences.
