How can a dance organizer solicit help?

  • ASK! Make a
    signup list. Take down emails
  • Play up the
  • Announcements:
    “we need help taking down stuff tonight, so please stick around
    after” – it’s easier to get someone to do something NOW than
    get them to remember to email you about it tomorrow
  • Offer free
    admission for volunteers
  • If you are on a
    college campus, learn to play the administrator game and make friends
    in the Student Activities Office.
  • It’s easier to
    help if the needed tasks are specifically enumerated/listed/known
  • It’s nice to
    have rotating/co-organizers so everyone has a chance to play and
  • Organizers “run”
    the dance – not the CALLER!
