Volunteers: The Heartbeat of the Network


How You Can Help

We are drawn to the Dances for many reasons - music and movement, sacred phrases, devotional prayer, the experience of unity and for our own healing as well as for cultivating a healing presence -, and from that we become involved in a wider community of kindred souls. If you want to broaden your sense of community, and deepen the scope of your involvement with the Dances, consider volunteering your time for this organization that supports the work (and play) of the Dances in North America.

Currently, we are seeking folks to join our Reconnection Project (RCP). Our goal is to contact every Dance Circle in the USA and Canada so we can determine Dance Circle needs and develop resources to help meet those needs. As a volunteer, you would contact Dance Circle Leaders in your area with a specific set of questions, then provide their answers back to the RCP lead to be collated with other responses. For more information, contact vimlanbarra.dupna@gmail.com

If you are interested in serving the Dances in North America, please consider the following, in addition to the above:

Grant writing and/or Fundraising

Submitting articles and photos (especially photos!) for the NA Newsletters. Contact the NA Newsletter Coordinator for more information.

Helping to develop ways to support local Dance Circles and/or take the Dances further into the world, and working with outreach projects.

Helping plan and strategize on how to hold a North American Dance camp.

Contact us if you want to learn about opportunities on the DUPNA board. The most core of the "skills" is, of course, the open heart and the desire to serve, so don't despair if the above-mentioned ways to help don't fit you - there's always room for a willing and enthusiastic volunteer.

Contact DUPNA for more information.
