Saturday Art & Dance Volunteer

 Saturday Art & Dance Volunteer


North Edinburgh Arts Saturday Arts & Dance programme is extremely popular with the local community and is one of our busiest days. We run both Arts and Dance sessions for 5 – 12 year olds. The sessions are split into two age ranges, 5-7 years and 8-12 years and the groups alternate between sessions from 10.30am – 11.20am and 11.30am – 12.30pm, with a healthy snack between sessions.

Volunteers will be expected to commit to one project with both ages, for example you would volunteer with either art or dance. This role would suit someone with an interest in working with children and young people and/or experience in an arts or dance. Read more about the Saturday Programme here.


Saturdays 10.30am – 12.30pm (10am – 1pm)
