Looking for volunteers
The first meeting took place virtually on February 11th at 6:30 pm with staff members, community volunteers, parents, and board members attending. Roxanne Nielsen facilitated a discussion about what DEI means within Pacific Ballroom Dance. Those present helped identify areas of growth, strategies and tactics for improvement. Tactics included date nights with free babysitting, offering “Come As You Are” concert shown free in schools, free virtual performances, regular teaching of cultural background of dances, a multicultural exchange/festival, salsa nights, daytime tea dances for seniors, and free or very low cost summer camps.
The task force will meet quarterly in May, August, November, and February each year. If you are interested in serving on the Diversity Task Force, please contact Roxanne Nielsen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
