Dance Manitoba Festival: Volunteers

The Manitoba Provincial Dance Festival could not function without the valuable support of its many volunteers. Each year over 200 individuals take part in a variety of tasks as volunteers in support of this event. If you would like to participate we would be happy to have you as part of the Festival team.

Examples of the types of shifts volunteers are asked to fill include, but are not limited to

  • Box Office
  • Souvenir Sales
  • Certificates
  • Ushers
  • Registration Table

A shift is between four to five hours in length.  For each shift that you work at the Manitoba Provincial Dance Festival, you will receive a complimentary day pass to attend the Festival on another day. If you work more than four shifts, we will gladly give you a Festival Pass (excludes Gala Concert) to return to the Festival as often as you would like to enjoy the performances.

To show our appreciation for all of the volunteers’ hard work, each year we hold a Volunteer Appreciation Contest. For each shift that you volunteer, you will receive a ballot to the contest. On the final day of the Festival, names will be drawn randomly for some great prizes. Remember, the more you volunteer, the better your chances to receive one of them.

The Volunteer form will be available to be downloaded and printed here by November 30, 2017.

Or you can email Dance Manitoba,dancefestvolunteer@mymts.net and include within the subject line 2017 VOLUNTEER.  If you would like to volunteer on behalf of a studio/group please include the name of the organization within your email.
