Zirka works hard to provide low fees and an exciting dance program for the Okanagan Valley. The board of directors is a volunteer and welcomes any help. To keep our fees low, we do ask each family to contribute at least four hours of volunteer time during the year. Please indicate on the attached form what you would be interested in doing. (As an alternative, some families may wish to donate $50 and forego the volunteer commitment. Please talk to one of the board members if this is your wish.)

  Your support is greatly appreciated!

Did you know... that yearly fees cover the cost of school rental, insurance and instructors fees? Additional fundraising provides for music, workshops, Christmas and year-end concerts, special events and additions to the costume bank. Performances and fundraising events need your help. Please help Zirka and the dancers by signing up to help with fundraising and other Zirka events. Commitment to your child's attendance for performances is essential in keeping our group strong and known in the community.
