Volunteer

Interested in volunteering for the only professional ballet company in Michigan? You may want to consider joining En Pointe – a group of volunteers committed to lifting the human spirit through the art of dance by assisting the GRB in the areas of fundraising, audience development, and education. They can regularly be seen ushering, managing the boutique, planning and executing special events, and much more.

What is En Pointe?
En Pointe is the volunteer group for the Grand Rapids Ballet. They can regularly be seen ushering, managing the boutique, planning and executing special events, and much more.

How Does it Work?
En Pointe Volunteer Coordinator Errol Shewman notifies volunteers of upcoming opportunities. There are two volunteer databases: the first database consists of members of En Pointe for the Grand Rapids Ballet, a group of volunteers committed to lifting the human spirit through the art of dance by assisting the GRB in the areas of fundraising, audience development, and education. The other database is made up of individuals who are not En Pointe members but have expressed an interest in volunteering.

While we encourage membership in En Pointe, please know that you do not have to be a member to volunteer. You are also not required to volunteer if you are a member. Among other advantages, En Pointe members do get first notice of volunteer opportunities (volunteer spots are filled on a first-to-respond, first-placed basis).
