Thank you to all that have already volunteered. We require Back Stage Assistants. You do get to see dress rehearsal and watch your dancer perform both at their rehearsal and recital. You don’t get to sit and watch the show. You will be responsible for your class back stage. Back Stage Assistants will be issued name badges, and only those with badges will be welcome back stage. This is a security measure. Back Stage Assistants do not need a ticket for the show they are assisting with. It is important that you are available for both dress rehearsal and recital dates. If you can be part of our BACKSTAGE CREW please email us and let us know - click here.
