Dance Parade, Inc. is a volunteer supported non-profit organization! It is the dedication, expertise and rhythm of these brave few that are solely responsible for the success of the event and all the background work that goes on all year long leading up to the parade and festival. Every month, we choose a different volunteer to spotlight. We ask them a few questions to let you know who they are, where they’ve come from and where they see themselves in the future.
Meet David Bruno
How did you first find out about Dance Parade?
I’m an aspiring accountant and I saw Dance Parade’s ad for a Finance intern online and I decided to check it out.
What is your current role in Dance Parade?
Currently, I’m helping the Finance Committee do Benchmarking Analysis comparing Dance Parade to other similar non-profits and I’m learning how Dance Parade works with Quickbooks, Taxes and does their budgets.
What is your dance background?
I don’t have a dance background yet…but after this year I will!
If you could share the stage with anyone in history famous or not, living or deceased, a trained dancer or not, performing a routine choreographed by yourself…who would it be?
That’s the best answer I think anyone has ever given for that question! 🙂
What does this year’s theme “Be the Momentum” mean to you?
A continuous dance routine.
What dance group are you most looking forward to seeing this year in the parade?
A group from the Alvin Ailey School for the Performing Arts.
If you could pick a Grand Marshall for this year’s parade….who would it be?
If you could pick another country to hold a Dance Parade and Festival….which would it be?
Volunteering at a non profit organization can at times be daunting and frustrating with limited personnel and limited funding….what is it that keeps you coming back for more and more?
I want to gain more accounting and business experience.
What pitch would you use to attract a new volunteer onto the Dance Parade team?
“Dance Parade’s the place to go to gain accounting and business experience!”
