Corps de Ballet Volunteer
Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet’s Corps de Ballet Volunteer Program was formed to support CPYB’s needs at every level. Whether you can contribute a few hours each year or a few hours each week, your support to CPYB will help us ensure our success.
As a volunteer, you’ll enjoy friendships, interact with the people who make our organization great – the students, faculty, staff and board members – and have fun! We hope your passion for the art form we love, will grow as we complete necessary operating tasks and together work toward obtaining the goals and objectives to ensure CPYB’s success.
