Become an OFFICIAL Friend of Dancing Grounds!


Friends Of Dancing Grounds

Friends of DG is a community of Dancing Grounds’ most avid enthusiasts, supporters, and of course friends—both local and afar! They help us improve and grow all while providing us with invaluable resources: fresh ideas, endless enthusiasm, and full hearts. As a friend, you’ll be supporting our team, get to work with New Orleans’ best dancers (here’s looking at you DG Youth!) and help to ensure that every person that interacts with Dancing Grounds has an unforgettable experience.

Why get involved?
Friends of DG will act as an extension of Dancing Grounds, helping us to grow and become more impactful in our communities and beyond. Not only will we get to tackle goals together, but you’ll gain a personal & professional network of like-minded individuals (it’s called friends of DG for a reason!) and likely participate in a lot of spontaneous dance parties. Think of it like having your favorite DG Members on speed dial.

Who can join?
Whether your brand new to Dancing Grounds or have been cheering us on at every event, anyone can join or nominate someone to be a Friend of DG.

The Responsibilities


Your mission? Introduce your friends and family to the joy that is DG, and make a commitment to living our social justice values. We’ll help you out along the way, so be sure to keep an eye out for email, social media posts, and special events.


Love Excel formulas? Speak another language? Bake a mean chocolate cake? We want to draw from the talents of our DG Friends to bring new resources and perspectives to our work!


As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, we don’t want to become reliant on grant funding from outsiders. We want to fund our work by leveraging the power and resources within our own community! We ask that DG Friends be our biggest champions on GiveNOLA Day and contribute to all of our special events.
