Kentucky Performing Arts Volunteer Services and Access Services are excited to be collaborating on a Volunteer Wellness Program! We hosted the first of seven classes on January 13th
in Todd Hall. The goal of the Volunteer Wellness Program is to promote
physical, mental, and emotional health in our volunteers, and provide
them with different opportunities to engage on a more personal level
with elements of the performing arts.
In this spring session, volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in Zumba Gold
classes. Through these classes, they will learn a variety of steps and
movements from different genres of dance, while also focusing on
balance, flexibility, and cardio health. This program is just a small
part of our investment in the well-being of our volunteers and shows our
gratitude for all that they do to support The Kentucky Center!
Kentucky Performing Arts is proud to have 500 active and friendly
volunteers who contributed nearly 60,000 hours of service last year. Volunteers
are an integral part of KPA’s team. They are the face
of Kentucky Performing Arts to patrons, the first to greet them when they
arrive for an event and the last face they see as they leave. Volunteers
fill a variety of roles here at Kentucky Performing Arts. These include
ticket takers, ushers, greeters, tour guides, bus assistants, as well as
manning our information desk and coat check, and providing important
support for our administrative functions and Access Services Program.
The high quality of service delivered by volunteers is a critical piece
in our mission, allowing us to provide unparalleled programming and
cultural events to the region.
