NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR 2024-2025
Embody Ambassadors are dancers with a specific calling to become leaders and change-agents in their communities. Ambassadors are trained 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 help create an environment on the convention floor that makes everyone feel safe, seen and supported. Ambassadors will learn how to become “tap-out” dancers. Tap-out dancers act as in class peer support during convention weekends. Tap-out dancers are identifiable by wearing a distinctive bracelet and are "on-duty" only when they choose to be. If a dancer is in need of support they can simply tap the arm of an "on-duty" ambassador who will meet them in a safe environment to talk.
The Ambassador Program Director will be available throughout the Embody weekend to support both tap-out dancers and those who need them.

Free tuition to all 2024-2025 tour events
