If you would like to help, we still have areas in need of volunteers before and during the event.  You do not need to be a professional member of ScotDance Canada; we can always find a place for you.


Contact Barb at if you are interested in helping out prior to the event – and yes, you can help from a distance!

To volunteer during the event, please submit your Volunteer – Expression of Interest form to Ruth Thurston
