Help us make Hullabaloo happen!
Hullabaloo can’t happen without support from the community – aka you! Hulla is run by a non-profit group, the Perth Swing Dance Society, and we are all volunteers on the committee and know that any event this large requires many hands to make the work lighter, and we appreciate your support. Anyone who does approx 5 hours of volunteering work will be entitled to a $50 discount on their pass. Your pass discount will be arranged with you once shifts have been allocated.
Jobs will include helping us set up the evening events, helping set up the late night venue on the Friday, packing up after events, helping out with food and catering, doing a door shift, or helping get aaaall the stuff from point A to point B and back again! Door shifts will be in approx 1 hour blocks (so you aren’t sitting at a desk all night), but all other shifts or tasks will vary in duration.
Please contact the volunteering team at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how you can help us continue to bring you the fun, inclusive, gosh darn awesome event we all know and love.
One of the great things about the swing dancing community is how friendly everyone is. You’ll find that if you travel interstate or overseas, anywhere there is swing dancing, there’ll be a local swing dancer willing to offer you a spare bed or couch to sleep on. In Perth we like to return the favour and ask that local dancers offer a place to stay for our visitors if they can (bed, couch, mattress on the floor.. whatever you’ve got!).
The usual deal for visitors is that they’re offered somewhere to sleep, somewhere to shower, a basic breakfast and tips on how to get around. How much you want to offer as a host is entirely up to you (eg cooking meals, sightseeing trips etc). Being a host means you get to meet new people, show off your city to visitors and they get to learn about Perth from a local. Ask anyone who hosts a lot and they can tell you about the strong friendships formed from hosting fellow dancers. We work really hard to match up potential hosts and hostees so that both parties get the best possible experience, and we have had really great feedback the last couple of years from everyone who has participated.
If you need hosting or are willing to host, please send an email to email@example.com.
