How can a dance organizer solicit help?
- ASK! Make a
signup list. Take down emails
- Play up the
“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!
