Once you experience or observe KMA's impact on a community, you may wish to participate at a deeper level and be a part of KMA's programming by serving as a volunteer. Being a volunteer can be rewarding in many ways - starting with the fulfillment of helping others to achieve their goals. As a volunteer, you can also learn valuable skills on how to be a teacher of the movement arts.
Those with a high aptitude for teaching and a deep desire to learn to be a teacher of movement arts may also be invited to KMA’s teacher training program.
It is truly inspiring to work with these young people. Their pure joy when participating in class gives me so much more in return! I always look forward to the next class assisting as a KMA Volunteer. Thank you Paul, for this gift.
