Volunteers Wanted



Are you a student looking to gain more experience? Or are you somebody who wants to make a difference and be part of a good cause? Perhaps you have some spare time on your hands? Xpress-Yourself Dance CIC, have multiple volunteering opportunities on offer in and around Birmingham, whatever your experience.

Who We Are 

Here at Xpress-Yourself Dance CIC we provide dance classes to older adults, as well as those living with disabilities, dementia, or have unpaid caring responsibilities. It is our aim to make dance accessible to everyone, no matter their age or ability, and our classes are completely inclusive being taught in both seated and standing capacities.  

Our Keep Dancing classes run weekly throughout Birmingham and the surrounding areas. We offer both in person and online classes from Monday – Friday, as well as a downloadable class for carers. We also run tea dance events throughout the year. 

Each month we learn a new dance style and have great fun whilst doing it! Not only is Keep Dancing a great way to keep yourself fit and healthy, but it is also a fantastic outlet to meet likeminded people and build a community of emotional support, as well as make plenty of new friends! 

Who Are We Looking For?

We are looking for volunteers to help with running our Keep Dancing classes, both online and in person. If you have any prior dance experience, or just have a love for dance and want to be part of the community we would love to hear from you!  

Additionally, we are looking for Keep Dancing hosts to help support new participants when they attend the class, as well as photographing magic moments for social media and capturing feedback from participants. 

Our tea dances are held every month, either in Sutton Coldfield or Acocks Green, and have proved to be a huge hit for our dancers. At these events we provide a sit-down meal, a large group dance, and will sometimes have special guests as entertainment. We would love a volunteer who could help with setting up the room, decorating tables, serving tea and coffee, helping to tidy up after and making our dancers feel warm and welcomed. All dates for our Sutton Coldfield events are below. We also have an event coming up on the 25th March in Acocks Green.

If you have skills in social media, content writing, marketing or administration, this would be a great help in the day-to-day running of the company. We also have monthly newsletters and blog posts which we share with our dancers and via social media. If you are looking for a way to develop these skills and gain experience, or maybe just want a useful outlet for your creativity, we would love to hear from you. 

The hours can be flexible, and where possible you will be able to work from home. Simply let us know what skills you can offer and what you’re looking for in a volunteering role. 

If any of these roles pique your interest, or you know someone who has one or more of these skills, please don’t hesitate to contact Faye at hello@xpress-yourself.co.uk, or Olivia at admin@xpress-yourself.co.uk. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
