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 Embody weekend to support both tap-out dancers and those who need them.
Ambassadors are able to attend all 2023-2024 Embody cities for free.
Ambassadors must participate in either our in-person Ambassadors Retreat, August 4th—6th in Orlando, FL or the virtual Ambassadors Retreat, July 28-30 (retreat cost is $349/ambassador). For mandatory studio events and unavoidable conflicts, ambassadors may receive a recording of the virtual retreat to watch back. If the retreat fee is a barrier for you, click here to fill out a financial assistance application form. In addition to the trainings, tuition to the Ambassadors Retreat also includes a photoshoot*, ambassador bonding activities, dance classes, dance based mental health seminars, and more! Ambassadors who also apply and are accepted into the assistant program pay a total of $399 for both programs.
*Only at the in-person retreat
Application Deadline and Requirements
