To volunteer

Kuopio Dance Festival is an international dance art festival that brings together dance enthusiasts, professionals and spectators every year. We are known for our smooth organisation, friendly, professional and enthusiastic service. 

Every year we look for volunteers to work in areas such as security, traffic control, course assistants and customer service at the Shop & Info desks. We are looking for persons who are cooperative, service-minded and have language skills. It is important to us that you can commit to your chosen role and its working hours.

As a volunteer, you are part of our festival community and it is important to us that you get the full experience of our international event. As a reward for your contribution as a volunteer, you are entitled to a festival wristband for the duration of the event. With your festival wristband, you will be able to watch free of charge the paid performances in the programme, as well as attend courses if places are available.  

So if you want to experience an international festival from the inside, network and learn new things, apply now. Please register soon, as volunteer positions are very popular.
