Docent is derived from the Latin word docere, meaning “to teach.”

Ballet docents are trained volunteers who help “educate” the community-at-large about the ballet through educational outreach programs. 

Docents as volunteers will...

  • Lead behind-the-scenes tours
  • Serve as greeters for special education and outreach events
  • Serve as ambassadors, promoting the art form
  • Attend training sessions to learn about Dance Theatre’s performances and specific education and outreach programs
