BACKSTAGE CHAPERONES: You have been invited to sign-up as a Backstage Chaperone for your dancer’s class using our online Sign-Up Genius Volunteer system. Please help us continue our organized, stress-free backstage experience, and join the fun by signing up to chaperone!
Call Time: All dancers should arrive backstage for the performance 1 hour before show time. Act 1 Dancers: If your dancer is ONLY in Act 1 you will need to come backstage during intermission and pick them up. We offer discounted dancer tickets so your Act 1 Dancer can sit with your family in the audience. Act 1 ONLY Chaperones are also excused at intermission. Act 2 Dancers: If your dancer is ONLY in Act 2, they will be allowed to sit with their class & Parent Chaperones in the back of the audience to watch Act 1. During intermission, they will return backstage and prepare for their parts in Act 2. Act 2 Dancers can be picked up backstage at the very end of the show. Dancers in BOTH Acts: If your dancer is performing in BOTH Acts (this includes Finale dancers) they will most likely be staying backstage for the entire performance. If time permits, they may be able to watch part of the show from the audience with their class & Chaperones. Please send a NON-MESSY snack & water bottle with your dancer. COVER-UPs – Please send your dancer with something to wear over his/her costume, especially if they will be watching any of the performance from the audience.
FLOWERS: Congratulate your dancer with a lovely rose bouquet by Suzy Haggerty Designs. Bouquets will be for sale in the lobby before the performance & during intermission.
CONCESSIONS: If you are not able to volunteer backstage, please sign-up to bring concession items to the lobby 1 hour before show time. These goodies will be available to our audience during intermission.
