Volunteers

What can you expect when you volunteer at CaDansa? Of course, a whole lot of fun and dancing!

This is what you’ll get from us because of your awesome work for CaDansa:
– Full entrance to the festival, to enjoy during and outside your volunteer shifts
– A discount on the official CaDansa 2019 t-shirt (which will of course feature the mascot)
– A sleeping place (bring your own mat and sleeping bag!)
– Food and drinks during the festival (breakfast and lunch in the volunteer lounge, dinner at our caterers)

But we do ask some work in return for all this, in order to make CaDansa happen. You’ll work in a team with a team captain who will explain more and make a schedule. You will work at most 6 hours per day. We ask you to be present in Steenwijk on Thursday the 24th of October at 14:00 at the latest (unless you agree something else with us and your team captain/are in one of the construction/deconstruction teams).

To sign up as a volunteer, please fill out this form. If you want to ask more questions about volunteering, you can reach us by sending an e-mail to volunteers@cadansa.nl.

You’re probably wondering now what teams we have at CaDansa. A short overview:

Pre-festival construction and post-festival deconstruction - Full!
