It takes the support of volunteers to organize and run PHDA competitions and fundraisers for our dancers. PHDA is an entirely member-run organization - without volunteers, we can't exist!

We require 8 members to fill our Board annually and approximately 20 other members to volunteer in some capacity at each of our 3 dance competitions each season. 

We ask that every PHDA member volunteer at (at least) 1 competition per season. Each competition volunteer position has at least 2 members assigned, which allows parents to watch their dancers on stage and assist with costume changes as needed.

Sign up to volunteer in the membership form or contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Hilary Heiney for volunteer opportunities (hilarymheiney@gmail.com).
