Help setup, greet, and breakdown at the dance:
AMC's dance container is an important part of what we do: creating a space where all are free to be their authentic selves in loving community.
We all help create this container together when we come dance, but there are particular roles within AMC which lead and establish that container.
Are you interested in being a facilitator? Making mixes? Supporting dancers and the container?
Organize and Govern
AMC is a community run 501c3 non-profit with a focus on education.
