Join Dance/NYC for a two-day gathering of the dance community in the New York metropolitan area. The 2019 Symposium will be hosted campus-style and make use of Hunter College’s expanding dance facilities and performance spaces for panel discussions, case studies, interactive workshops, a networking lunch, and more.  For more information, visit Dance.NYC.


The Symposium offers four types of volunteer opportunities, including Week-Of volunteers, Day-Of volunteers, and Stage Managers.

Week-Of Volunteers come in for a total of 9 hours over two separate days. The first five-hour shift must take place on the day of the event, on Friday, February 22. The second four-hour shift can take place the week before the event or the week after the event and is flexible upon availability. Tasks include support for administration, production, media editing, post-production, and more.

Day-Of volunteers attend the Symposium on Friday, February 22 and/or Saturday, February 23, volunteering for a minimum of 4 hours. Volunteers are typically scheduled in workstations, including production areas such as set up, registration, guest relations, photography, and more.

Break-Out Sessions Stage Manager:  
Break-Out Sessions Stage Manager volunteers will attend the conference on Saturday, February 23, and are required to be present for the full day of conference activities. Stage Managers will oversee all sessions in a given room, ensuring that events begin and end on time, speakers are present and prepared, seating arrangements are changed if needed, and audience members complete and submit surveys. Stage Managers may also fill out tech surveys and post on social media.
