Greater York Dance depends on volunteers and gives members of the community a chance to be involved through several types of volunteer programs and committees. We could not possibly make it through a season without the community and family volunteers who make so many great things happen. Everyone is encouraged to get involved and to volunteer! You’ll make friends for a lifetime. All volunteers need their clearances according to PA law.

Strengthen Our Financial Foundation
Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC)
Opportunities are available to sponsor our major performances or educational outreach programs that benefit many. The State of Pennsylvania has made tax credits of $100 million available through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit program (EITC). This allows qualified donor organizations to donate up to 90% of their PA State tax obligation to the Midstate Ballet, which has been approved as an Educational Improvement Organization. A gift to Greater York Dance could provide your company with a substantial tax credit through the EITC. Companies can save in PA taxes as much as 90% of the value of the donation by making a contribution to our Dance It Forward educational program. Your gift will help us to continue to offer our DancExperience and create new programs to further enhance educational opportunities in our community.
