Call for Volunteers
Each year Dusk Dances produces a series of outdoor dance events in public parks. The events feature an array of choreographic works presented nightly at sunset. Choreographers from various backgrounds are invited to perform ten-minute dance pieces inspired by the park's natural environment. As dusk descends, a theatrical host leads the audience to the various dance works that unfold in different areas of the park.
What’s the job? Dusk Dances Withrow Park is looking for at least 12 volunteers for 7 evening performances (Monday August 1 to Sunday August 7) and for 2 matinée performances (August 4 and 7). We also require 5 volunteers for our dress rehearsal on Sunday July 31. Plus, we need on-call volunteers for rain dates! Interested in volunteering at Withrow, or at one of our other tour locations? Please register below and someone will get back to you shortly.
What will I do? Your tasks will vary depending on the position you choose. The tasks include: attend to the information table, dressing room security, watch our technical equipment at various sites around the park, and collect donations from audience members. Volunteer duties also include program stuffing, helping to move the audience from site to site, and nightly set-up/tear down of info table, banners and signs.
When do I need to show up? Please see our SEASON for all events dates and locations. For the evening performances, the opening band starts at 7pm and the choreographies begin at 7:30pm. For the matinée performances, the opening band begins at 2pm and the choreographies begin at 2:30pm. Volunteers are required at the park from 4:45pm until no later than 10:30pm—there will be two shift times within this period.
