Dance Collection Danse
Dance Collection Danse is Canada’s national dance museum, archives, publisher and research centre dedicated to Canadian theatrical dance. Our holdings include 450,000 documents, 1100 hours of oral history interviews, 2000 moving image recordings, 750 books and 900 costumes, backdrops, props and artifacts.
Dance Collection Danse (DCD) is currently recruiting engaged and enthusiastic volunteers to assist with collections management and education.
As we make headway in securing our own vast collection of artifacts from Canada’s dance past, we will also be assisting with the extensive archival collections at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts and Canada’s National Ballet School. Volunteers assist with organizing material, transferring it to clean, acid-free storage and cataloguing it in our Canadian Integrated Dance Database. Hours are flexible and on-site training is provided.
We are also recruiting volunteer docents to deliver our new education program for grades 1 through 12 in the DCD Gallery. Training will be provided.
