Parent Helpers Needed!
Dear Parents,
Each year at our annual performance showcase, we seek to make the backstage experience for our dancers as positive, safe and enjoyable as possible.
 
In order to do this, we need parent helpers to volunteer in assisting with bathroom visits, keeping classes 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.
 
You will be with the children from 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.
 
THANK YOU for helping us to provide a safe and happy environment for the dancers!
Please sign up in the office. All volunteers must have criminal & child safety clearances. 
 
Mandatory meeting for all backstage volunteers
Wednesday March 7, 6:30 pm
