Youth Performance Training Organization Seeking Energetic Fund Coordinator


The SHOW Company is a local not-for-profit, youth performing company specializing in vocal and dance training for young artists aged 9 – 25. The SHOW was founded in 2016 and has been steadily growing and gaining a profile within the city and through its online media presence since.


The SHOW’s mission is to empower emerging young performers at every level of learning. Training with the SHOW goes beyond taking a signing lesson or a dance class.  Company members are encouraged to hone their talents, go beyond their best, and ultimately transition from amateur to professional artists.


No other program offers a well-rounded performance education for pre–professional performers over 18 years of age.  We offer professional level training within Calgary, so that talented young performers do not need to leave for other locations (most commonly Los Angeles, New York, Toronto and Vancouver).  We prepare these aspiring artists for the world of performance right here and grow Calgary’s artistic community at the same time!


The SHOW has 3 divisions:

  1. Juniors (age 9 – 12)
  2. Seniors (age 13 – 18)
  3. Headliners (age 16 – 25)

We want you to be part of our success and help us to grow our local talent right here in Calgary. To meet our growth and program objectives, The SHOW is seeking a talented and driven fundraising professional.
