Master of Ceremonies (MC)

You will be the face of Dance: Make Your Move during the main show. You will be responsible for engaging the audience and introducing each act before their performance. If you love public speaking and entertaining a large audience this position is ideal.

Backstage Runners

In this role you will help the dancers to get on and off stage at the correct time, ensuring everyone knows where they need to be and when. A great role if you love working with young people. A DBS check is required for this position.

 

Judge Liaison

You will be the contact point between the judges and the backstage team. You will meet the judges and brief them on the evening ensuring they are comfortable with the judging criteria. You will escort judges to and from the auditorium, scribe certificates and make sure the results sheet is complete and returned to the MC to read the results.
