Description and Opportunities
Embody Ambassadors are dancers with a specific calling to become leaders and change-agents in their communities. Ambassadors are trained under our Director of Community to work with peers as mediators, touchstones and role models. This program is designed to help ambassadors grow their leadership skills while focusing on equity and inclusion.
Ambassadors will learn how to become “tap-out” dancers. Tap-out dancers are identifiable by wearing a distinctive bracelet and are "on-duty" only when they choose to be. If another dancer is feeling overwhelmed or like they need a peer to speak to, they can simply tap the arm of an "on-duty" ambassador who will meet them in a safe environment to talk. The Director of Community will be available throughout the weekend to support both tap-out dancers, and those who need them.
Ambassadors will help lead a full community meeting. This meeting will create a space where the community can engage in ways that help grow our “common sense”. That is; the vocabulary and ways of being that communities grow when spending time together. We will work on leadership skills and practice skills related to inclusivity and kindness. These meetings will be exciting with opportunities to engage theatrically and somatically.
Lastly, Ambassadors will help create our Embody Dance Conference closing party! This is an opportunity to merge what you have learned about your community and about leadership with a lot of fun.
