Part of a student's commitment to Alexander Academy includes volunteering to support the studio and our dancing 'ohana's culture of collaboration. The collective contribution of our registered families to care for our studio space and participate in our fundraisers is as vital to the stability of the school as is paying tuition in a timely manner.


Every registered family with AAPA is expected to volunteer to help keep tuition costs low for everyone. We are grateful for all our registered families who respect this policy, as it is what makes us unique and fosters the warm and welcoming environment our students and families enjoy.

Examples of volunteer activities include:

  • Cookie Sales Fundraiser 

  • Car Wash Fundraiser

  • Studio building maintenance

  • Donation of supplies for fundraisers and year-round studio operations (car wash tools, concessions, paper towels, water, etc.)

  • Cleaning sessions

  • Costuming

  • Washing and organizing costumes

  • Publicity

  • Finding sponsors for productions

  • Selling program advertisements for our annual productions.

  • Spring Production help: including ushering, set up/break down, selling tickets, concessions, concession donations, selling t-shirts, backstage help, etc. 

Volunteer opportunities are available throughout the year; stay tuned to the monthly Footnotes newsletters (via email), the studio white boards, or the Volunteer Needs page to sign up!

Want to give more? Work-Study participants work hand-in-hand with AAPA staff to support studio operations and achieve studio goals. We truly value the time, talent, and resources of our registered families as valuable contributions that strengthen our dance school. 

Volunteer Commitment

Respecting our studio space is everyone's kuleana.

There are small tasks anyone can do in 5 minutes before or after class to help keep our dance home tidy:

  • organize Lost & Found bin

  • pick up litter

  • wipe down a surface

  • dry mop the dance floors

  • put away toys

  • pick up water bottles or left items


No need to sign up: if you see it,  help out!  We appreciate your contribution to our dancing 'ohana!
