HELP WANTED! Parent Helpers Needed

Dear Parents,


Each year at our annual performance we seek to make the backstage experience for our dancers of all ages as positive, safe, and enjoyable as possible.


In order to do this, we need parent helpers to volunteer in assisting with bathroom visits, keeping the class together, and getting the dancers ready when it is their turn to perform. You will also be with the class to escort them to and from the stage.


It is a delight and lots of fun to be backstage with all the dancers. There is another kind of show behind the scenes!

You will be with your child's class for the entire time of the show and be in the wings while they perform so you see them up close and personal!

It is fun and rewarding to volunteer your time and efforts to the backstage team. Without your help the show would not go on! We need a minimum of two volunteers per class please.


THANK YOU for helping us create a safe and happy environment for the dancers!


Please sign up in the office no later than APRIL 30th. Thank You.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
