In order to provide a performance venue for all levels of dancers at an affordable cost, we will be relying on volunteers in the pole and aerial community and beyond to help this showcase run smoothly. Anyone can volunteer, and it is a great way to support your pole and aerial sisters and brothers. Please scroll down the page for descriptions of each position. Here are the steps to sign up:
1. Complete the registration form below. You will see a confirmation page when you have successfully completed it.
2. Download the volunteer information packet. It has information about venue, transportation, tickets, etc.
3. We will send a schedule via email about 30 days prior to the event to all volunteers that have registered.
There will be volunteer opportunities in the following areas:
Stage Monitors: Those interested in making sure that competitors are checked in at the stage and ready to compete to allow the competition to run smoothly are encouraged to register.
Registration: Those interested in checking in competitors as they arrive, checking and selling spectator tickets and programs, and directing all to their proper areas are encouraged to register.
Medical professionals: Those with medical or emergency training experience who would like to just be available on-site should any minor injuries occur or to assist should a medical emergency occur are encouraged to apply. These professionals would primarily be on-call.
General assistants: Those wanting to assist in any way necessary to ensure that the event runs smoothly and that competitors and spectators alike have a great time are encouraged to register.

Judging: (For Competition Only) Those interested in judging the performances of the competitors are encouraged to apply. Studio owners, instructors and professional pole competitors are encouraged to apply to judge the competitors in the different events. We will match your experience with the competitors skill levels. We are also looking for choreographers and dancers that would like to judge the artistic events. Those without experience that would like to participate in the judging process can assist by acting as referees or time-keepers.

Must be comfortable with climbing a pole multiple times throughout the day. Pole cleaners will also be expected to wear the appropriate clothing for climbing a pole and need to bring a black shirt and black shorts that meet FPAAS costume standards for coverage.
