  • Choreographers are responsible for getting their group on the stage well in time and coordinating with the backstage/hall management team.
  • Sign Up Genius registrations: Marin Utsav is completely volunteer driven. To keep our costs down, we have adopted a volunteer model similar to kids sports leagues. One member of each participant’s family will need to volunteer for the MU event. Families can opt out of volunteering by paying $25 to ‘Marin Indian American Association. This will help offset the cost of hiring outside help. Your act will not be confirmed until every participant family signs up for a volunteer slot/pay the opt out fee. The person registering the act is responsible for coordinating this with your participant families. Click on the below link for volunteer registration.
