Chilliwack Lions Club Music and Dance Festival

CHILLIWACK LIONS CLUB MUSIC & DANCE FESTIVAL EXTENDS A WARM WELCOME

For Current 2018

Band, Choral & Woodwinds/Brass/Percussion Adjudicators please check under ADJUDICATORS.

URGENT REQUEST for Dance Co-ordinator and other adult Volunteers

If you know of anyone with dance competition knowledge be they parent, former parent or student or teacher who could possibly take on this position, please let me know immediately.  

The following would be ideal:

It would be best if it was 3 people as then the load is lighter all around and then there is always a backup for possible switching if required

Division would be            Ballet/Modern  7 days

Days are approx.            Jazz  8 days

                                       Stage, Tap, S & D, Acro, and Street 6 days

We currently have a couple of people who are willing to take on a couple days at a time and we would consider anyone who is willing to do the same thing.  The important thing is that we would need to make sure that everyone is working together to help each other to have every session properly covered.  I am able to help as well, but need to keep on top of my own work to keep the office running smoothly as well.

The Co-ordinator(s) is(are) paid a small honourarium of $50 per festival day worked.  On 3 session days, lunch is provided.

Their job would entail:

       *          getting writers

  •        getting at least one adult for each competitive session
  •        overseeing workshops on-site registration and check in of pre-registration
  •        overseeing technique Class check-in of pre-registration
  •        assigning jobs to school volunteers

Please give this some serious thought as we need this position(s) filled as soon as possible.

Thanks, Laurie Hirschman
