Student Dance Buddy

Opportunity

We are looking to expand our team of buddy/helper volunteers at our contemporary dance club for young people with down syndrome. The club, delivered by the 'Stop Gap' dance company, runs for an hour every Saturday morning, during term time, between 11.30am and 12.30pm.
Our young people (11 upwards) love learning and watching the routines - but often need a little encouragement to engage and learn the new steps. This is where our volunteers come into their own, helping ensure everyone is having fun and that our shyest members are encouraged to meet everyone and get the most from the sessions.

The role is ideal for students including those taking a DofE award.

Skills

Excellent communication skills.
Enjoy contemporary dancing and having fun.
Free most Saturday mornings and able to get to the venue which is located in Farnham.
Aged 15+
