bluesSHOUT! would never be the great weekend that it is without its volunteers! As you might expect, bluesSHOUT! is a complicated event with many moving parts. To ensure that we have the right people for the jobs at hand, we need to know a little more about you, your strengths, and your commitment to helping out.

When you volunteer for bluesSHOUT!, you become a part of bluesSHOUT!. We rely on you to be part of the team! This means promptness for your shifts, fully completing tasks assigned to you, and making decisions in your areas of authority. It's important to us that you still have an epic time at the event, so we'd rather you commit a bit less than miss any of your duties.

Here's what you need to do to be considered as a volunteer:

You'll be reimbursed for your volunteer hours after the weekend is over. Reimbursement is $15/hr up to the cost of your weekend package.

Volunteering FAQ

  • 7 hours for After 5 Pass
  • 13 hours for Full Access
You must register and send in a check in order to be approved to volunteer. We will not cash your check until after bluesSHOUT!. If you complete enough hours to cover your entire pass then the check will be shredded. All passes are non-refundable. If you decide to no longer come to the event your check will be cashed. You can transfer your pass to another dancer or defer it to next year.
When you complete the Volunteer Interest Form you can request to be ‘off’ for those contests. We do require that you tell us you are going to compete *before* you approve your volunteer slots. After that you are required to find someone else to switch or cover your shift that is an approved volunteer.
Once you have confirmed your schedule, you will be expected to be present for every shift you’re scheduled for. You will receive a copy of the schedule to approve prior to the weekend. If you look at the schedule at a later date and would like to swap shifts with anyone, that change MUST go through the Volunteer Coordinator. You will be provided with her cell phone number when you get your final volunteer schedule.
If you find that you will miss or be late for a shift for any reason, call Dee immediately. If we’ve had enough notice to get the on-call person to cover your shift, then your pay will only be reduced for the missed shift. If, however, you don’t give us enough notice, then your pay will be reduced for double the credits that shift was worth. Please show up for your shifts!
