If you haven't already, see Getting Involved for descriptions of specific jobs (see the section titled Some Committment) and Anatomy of a Dance for why you should volunteer at all.

Why Sign Up Online

With SignUp Genius you can

How to Use SignUp Genius

Follow one of the links at the bottom to the HATDS signup page (choose the mobile or desktop site). Find the date and the job you'd like to sign up for, put a check mark next to that job, and click Submit.

SignUp Genius with no one signed up

The only thing that you must enter when you sign up is your name, but even then you don't have to enter your full name. Just don't use an alias; we need to know who you are. So if your name is Jane Doe, you could enter J Doe, Jane D, or Jane Doe.

You do not have to enter your email, although if you do SignUp Genius will send you a reminder a couple of days before the dance.

You do not have to create an account with SignUp Genius to use it. In fact, we suggest that you don't create an account!
