Volunteers keep our shows running smoothly by helping with costume changes, lining up dancers, and chaperoning dancers in the dressing rooms. They may be moms, older siblings, or close relatives. Volunteers are not required to purchase a recital ticket to the show they volunteer for and are able to watch their dancer's routine by stepping into the audience one number before they perform.
You can sign up by going to the VOLUNTEER tab in the parent portal. Thank you in advance for your help - we couldn't do this without you!
Recital time may be overwhelming for students, new and experienced! Please let us know if you have any questions along the way and we will be more than happy to guide you!
