It takes the support of volunteers to organize and run PHDA competitions and fundraisers for our dancers. PHDA is an entirely member-run organization - without volunteers, we can't exist!

We require 8 members to fill our Board annually and approximately 20 other members to volunteer in some capacity at each of our 3 dance competitions each season. 

We ask that every PHDA member volunteer at (at least) 1 competition per season. Each competition volunteer position has at least 2 members assigned, which allows parents to watch their dancers on stage and assist with costume changes as needed.

Sign up to volunteer when you register for a competition or contact sara.albert@gmail.com.

How you can help:

  • Set Up - Put out chairs for parents, set up judge's table, etc.
  • Snack Bar - Assist hungry dancers & parents by selling snacks during the competition.
  • PHDA Fundraisers - Develop a fundraising project or assist a fundraising coordinator.
  • Check-In Table - Check FUSTA cards and pass out competition numbers.
  • Dance Steward (marshal) - Ensure that the dancers get on stage at the correct time and in the correct order.

  • Tally Table (scrutineer) - Translate judge's scores into placings according to SOBHD guidelines.
