Northwest School of the Arts Dance Arts Boosters (DAB)

DAB meets every 4th Thursday at 6PM

The meetings are open to Middle School and High School students and parents. We discuss what is going on within the dance department, upcoming events, fundraising ideas, and ways to support our dancers and staff.

Mission statement

The purpose of the Dance Arts Boosters is to:

  • support all the dance students and dance teachers in the dance department at NWSA
  • lead fundraising campaigns
  • promote the art of dancing

Get Involved!

BECOME A VOLUNTEER!

All volunteers must be registered with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools at cmsvolunteers.com.

You must be linked with Northwest School of the Arts whether you are an employee, or registered at another school. Every year you must renew your registration.

You also have to log your volunteer hours from any volunteer activities (meetings, concerts, outreach, chaperoning field trips, etc). The goal is for every parent to volunteer at least 2 hours for the dance department. 

Volunteer opportunities are generally sent out through SignupGenius. Examples include:

  • Ticket Sales
  • Dance Wear Sales
  • Patron Sales
  • Concession Sales
  • Chaperones
  • Costumes

There are also student volunteer opportunities for concerts (ushers, runners, etc.).

To thank you for being a volunteer, you will receive one free ticket to one night in the concert series. *excludes the Repertory Concert series
