Our vision is that young people will create the ballet of the future.



Be part of our incredible team.  Be inspired by ballet and performance.  Make new friends.  Know that you’re integral to what we do – three fabulous reasons to get volunteering.

It’s the skills, time and expertise of our volunteers that operationally facilitate and help the growth and development of our company and make what we do unique.  Whether you’re looking to help in our Wardrobe department, be a House Parent at our Residential Performance Company, Chaperone, help out backstage or as part of our administration team, we have lots of roles that might appeal.


Current Volunteer Opportunities

House Parent Volunteers

In addition to our Residential Performance Company team, NYB is now seeking a Support Team of House Parent volunteers to join us for the duration of the Residential Performance Company.  This is an exciting opportunity to experience first-hand the unique process of taking our company of talented dancers from studio to stage in one week. It also opens a window for parents or family to see the values and culture of National Youth Ballet come alive in the beautiful setting of Elmhurst Ballet School and to get to know the core NYB team and creative practitioners.
