Just Dance: Q&A With D4H Mega Mime’s Event Manager

Just Dance: Q&A With D4H Mega Mime’s Event Manager

By Caroline Cox, April 26, 2016

What kind of staff do you have on-site?
We have a fantastic staff. We have about 300 volunteers who come and serve. They don’t mime—they’re part of the registration; they’re part of security; they come every year and they believe in what we do. Then, when we do a major concert at the end of the conference, we showcase what they’ve learned. It touches the heart of the community when they see these 5- and 8-year-olds all moving in sequence at the same time to music—it’s breathtaking.

How would you describe the concluding concert to someone who has never seen it?
I think the concert is a movement. It’s very tribal because once you see people come together there is a level of fellowship. When you see these young people, adults and volunteers come from all over the country, it’s like a family reunion. Everybody’s anticipating it. When we end it with a concert where there’s a lot of worship, praise, joy and excitement, every year we have people in the general audience come up and say, “How can I get involved? What do I need to do?” or “How can I get my children involved?” They want to be a part of it.
