We’re looking for Volunteers for DDF2016!


VOLUNTEER RECRUITMENT SESSION - Sat 30 April, 12pm, Festival House, 12 East Essex Street, Temple Bar. ALL WELCOME!

Spring is in the air and even more so in your step - Dublin Dance Festival is now hiring Volunteers for the 2016 Festival in May.

So whether it’s ballet, contemporary dance, Irish dancing, tap dancing or street crumping that gave you the dance bug - or even if you are just curious as to what it is all about – DDF, Ireland's leading contemporary dance event will help you discover your inner performer. From main stage to outdoor ‘arenas’, from solo pieces to family events, this festival promises to get those toes tapping.

Every year we are inundated with the good will and enthusiasm of our ‘Tiny Dancers’, the volunteers, to make the Festival the success that it is today and help it grow with its audience year by year. Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds join forces for 12 days of dance in May and can be found both Front of House and behind the scenes helping to make the Festival happen on a daily basis. If you are interested in a career in the arts or event management, seeing how it all comes together as a volunteer is not a bad place to start.
