What Is A Room Monitor?
Room Monitors are an additional set of eyes for West Coast Dance Explosion Event Staff throughout the weekend during convention classes. Each age specific ballroom at National Finals has three shifts available: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.
What Does A Room Monitor Do?
The main function of a Room Monitor is to help WCDE check event wristbands and credentials during workshop class times. All adults present in a ballroom must have a WCDE Observer Wristband, Dance Educator Credential, or WCDE Staff Badge in order to gain access to any ballroom spaces. Room Monitors must be present either just outside the ballroom doors or on the interior entrance during all scheduled classes and breaks (with the exception of lunch when ballrooms are closed). Monitors will also help answer some basic questions about the event and communicate with WCDE staff if any issues arise in their assigned ballroom.
Who Can Be A Room Monitor?
If you are a parent or guardian of an individual attending a WCDE Event, you can be a Room Monitor! All selected individuals must comply with all WCDE and venue policies. Should a particular venue or local ordinance have COVID-19 policies, monitors will be expected to comply with those policies. If selected as a WCDE Room Monitor, you must agree to a criminal background check. WCDE will conduct all background checks prior to the event at no cost to the applicant.
What Do I Get For Being A Room Monitor?
Each selected monitor will receive benefits based on them accepting one or three shifts. Monitors have the benefit of being able to observe class during their shift!*
Monitors who accept one shift will recieve a Three Day Parent Observer Pass. ($55 Savings!)
Monitors who accept three shifts will recieve a Three Day Parent Observer Pass & a merchandise credit of $60! (valid during lunch on Sunday)
*Room Monitors are not permitted to observe scholarship auditions as only those with Dance Educator Credentials or WCDE Staff Badges are permitted to observe scholarship auditions.
