Thanks To Our Volunteers!

Happy International Volunteers Day!

Ballet BC is thrilled and grateful to have an incredible group of volunteers who regularly contribute their valued time and energy to Ballet BC. We have a diverse group of volunteers who support us in a number of ways, but Cody Cox is someone we have the pleasure of working with a few days a week, when he helps us with ticketing, sales, and audience services.

Tell us about your relationship with dance.

I started really getting into dance near the end of my high school education and decided that dance was what I wanted to do with my life. I have since graduated from the Simon Fraser University dance program and dancing there only proved to myself that dance was what I wanted to do. I love going to see dance productions as often as I can, and I can’t wait to be dancing on stage as part of a large dance company.

How were you introduced to Ballet BC?

I had always seen the advertisements for the shows but it was not until their 2013-2014 season that I went to see the company perform. The student rush tickets that were introduced were a good incentive as well. After my graduation from SFU, I emailed  the volunteer coordinator at the time which led to my first volunteer shift for the show UN/A.

Why do you choose to volunteer for Ballet BC?

I do it for multiple reasons. It is great to be a part of and involved with a prominent force in the arts such as Ballet BC. Helping out and making things go easier and quicker so that the show runs smoother is an important thing and I enjoy being that helping hand. All the office employees have been nothing but friendly so it’s  a great environment to be in. Being a dancer myself, it is good way to learn the workings of a company and make any connections I can.

Big thank you to Cody and all our volunteers for your support of Ballet BC.
