The DJ/MC is responsible for introducing performers, organizing and playing music that the dancers provide, and conducting several awards ceremonies. This position requires tasks be performed in a timely fashion that ensures efficient transitions between sections of the dance program. The job requires the DJ/MC to keep the event moving at a steady pace within tight time constraints. The ability to create a fun, relaxed, and enjoyable atmosphere is critical. This job is seasonal and requires one to travel through the months of February to July usually flying out Thursday night and returning home Monday morning. We handle your food, travel, and hotel. In short, this is a very visible position that has a major impact on our clients' and fans' receptivity and enjoyment of our events.
