TDT 2024 Registration

We're excited to have you join us for a fantastic weekend of music, dancing and camping! Let us know a few things about yourself and what you want out of this event, and we'll be ready to throw a party you won't soon forget!

This'll be (relatively) quick, we promise.

Basic Info

Volunteering

Volunteers are important and we love you.

In our efforts to make this event equitable and accessible, we are separating volunteer roles from financial need. Volunteers will not receive monetary compensation, but will have the gratitude of everyone involved and the satisfaction of helping the event run! When we all put what we can into the event, we can all get what we need out of it.

If you are interested in volunteering before, during or after the event weekend, please take the time to fill out the following questions. If not, skip ahead to the next section and we won't judge you.

In general (we'll ask about timing next)
This can be an estimate, and will help us as we plan - we'll confirm with you before scheduling you for anything.
We'll host a couple of work parties as we're getting ready for the weekend.
We're going to need a hand unloading gear into storage.
For example: medical, lighting, audio, food prep, etc.

Food

Meals throughout the weekend will be provided at an additional cost ($30).

We will be offering 5 communal meals during the weekend: Friday evening, Saturday midday and evening, and Sunday midday and evening.

As we plan our menu, we will endeavor to offer options to account for as many allergies and dietary restrictions as we can, but cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate everyone. All meals will definitely be nut-free, with gluten-free and dairy-free options.

Snacks are important and will be included with the ticket price and available throughout the event. No one likes a hangry camper.

We will do our best to accommodate any food allergies, so please let us know if something will kill you. Or keep you from dancing. Both would be sad.

The Great Outdoors

This is a camping event. You will be camping in a grassy meadow. You need to bring (or source) your own camping equipment.

There is no access to indoor restrooms, showers, whirlpool tubs, 3D printers, kitchen equipment, refrigerators, espresso machines, shoe shine services, WiFi, or electricity.

Code of Conduct

Release & Waiver of Liability

Photo Policy

We will have an official event photographer and a DIY photo booth set up for the whole weekend.

  • All pictures taken at the photo booth will be both printable in the moment, and available to attendees after the event.
  • Photos taken by our event photographer will potentially be used to represent The Dance Thing on social media and beyond.
  • All official photos will be made available to all attendees after the event.
  • We will reach out to obtain your consent before using any photos you are in for future promotion or marketing.

If you'd like to opt out of being photographed, please wear a "photo opt-out" wristband during the event. These will be available to pick up at check-in.

Accessibility

We have an Accessibility Coordinator on staff who will reach out to you to accommodate any accessibility needs you may have. Please note that this includes ANYTHING that may hinder your attendance – physical disability, mental illness, etc.

Include any airborne or contact allergies related to food.

COVID-19

The Dance Thing is a large, primarily outdoor event with indoor dancing. Our COVID policies and procedures are intended to protect our community. That being said, we recognize that with any large event there is some risk. We reserve the right to adjust these practices if significant public health changes occur close to the event.

Testing & Sickness

Rapid testing will be required ON SITE at the event during the weekend.

We will be providing tests to all attendees.

Testing ahead of time may be a good idea in order to prevent any surprises after travel but you will still test when you arrive at the venue, and throughout the weekend.

If you test positive or find yourself sick prior to the event, please stay home, and contact us to discuss a refund.

Tickets

All attendees who are 18 or older pay the full ticket price.

Tickets for attendees ages 13-17 are half price.

Children 12 years old and younger can attend the event free of charge.

Our ticketing is structured as a guided sliding scale: the below prices are recommendations based on our budgeting for the event.

If you're able to contribute more than the suggested prices, or they are outside what you can afford, select the "Other" option below, and enter whatever price you feel comfortable with!

No one will be turned away due to lack of funds – we want you here!

It can be as low as $0 or as high as you like!

Payment Plans

We are offering the option of a payment plan to all of our attendees, regardless of the ticket price you've selected. If you opt in, you will be billed upfront for the first portion, then again every week until your ticket is fully paid for.

If you opt in to a payment plan, we'll save your card information in securely Stripe to use for future transactions.
