Omaha Jitterbugs thrives because we have a community that supports our mission. We couldn’t do it with out you. Thank you to all the individuals and groups that continue to share their gifts, talents, resources, and services with our organization, enabling us to do what we do.
Our JIVE members (Jitterbugs Investing Volunteer Efforts), led by JIVE Coordinator Nancy Novotny, work tirelessly making our events run smoothly. Our Board of Directors works behind the scenes to keep the organization relevant, effective, and compliant. Our teachers, Josie & Brian Langbehn, Lindsay & Billy Sobczyk, Christy Palmer, and Verity Swaney keep classes fun and high-quality. Our Development Director Mary Gronewold, and our Executive Director Billy Sobczyk work with many other contracted artists, professionals, and volunteers to get the day-to-day work done that Omaha Jitterbugs requires.
