When you register, request a volunteer discount, and specify the number of hours you wish to work. We will try to accommodate all volunteer requests until we fill the total of 40 hours needed help.

Do I need to pre-register?
Can I attend just an evening dance or a workshop or two?
Can I bring a non-dancing guest?
Yes. There is no admission charge for your guest. If your guest wishes to have meals onsite, he/she will have to purchase a meal plan. If your guest wishes to nosh at that dance snack table, he she will have to bring a snack contribution or donate $5 for the snack fund. See the Admission page for details
Can I bring my child[ren]?
Yes. Children who are experienced dancers are welcome on the dance floor. Children who are non-dancers are welcome at the site. However, child care is not provided, and we do not have any scheduled activities for non-dancing youth. In the New River Gorge Scenic Recreation Area, there is a multitude of fun activities for young and old. Non-dancing kids would love one of these activities if you wanted to spend Saturday morning and / or afternoon adventuring. See the Pro-guided Adventures page and the Self-guided Adventures page for suggestions.
