American Dance Academy
Santa always needs some help and so do we! Volunteers are now being requested. As an American Dance Academy student, your child is a direct beneficiary of this volunteer effort, so we hope that you will become an enthusiastic member of our volunteer pool. Most jobs require limited commitment at a specific time during dress rehearsal and/or the Holiday Show or during your own free time at the studio. We encourage you to become involved in some way with our volunteer program and welcome any contribution you are willing to make. Please do not bring young children with you while you are volunteering.
*Costume Setup-1 DAY We will need parents to help with organizing costumes (hanging in order of labeled numbers) on Wednesday, October 23rd from 6:30-9:30. You may come into the studio during any of those hours to help.
*Costume Put Away-1 DAY We will need parents to help with organizing costumes (hanging in order of labeled numbers) on Monday November 25th from 9-12. You may come into the studio during any of those hours to help.
*Costume Fitting Day-CHOOSE 1 DAY DURING YOUR CHILD’S REHEARSAL We will need parents to assist in fitting costumes to the children during their scheduled rehearsal time on November 1st & 2nd.
*Costume Repair Help-DONE ON YOUR OWN We will need minor costume help (tacking, stitching, etc) during the weeks of November 2nd-November 16th. You may come into the studio during any studio hours to help or take them home to do on your own time.
*Backstage Mom-CHOOSE ONE SHOW-MUST ATTEND DRESS REHEARSAL! The goal of a backstage mom is to assure the safety of each child in their care and to be sure all children are accounted for. You will be responsible to ensure that each child is in the proper costume, has the proper accessories and shoes, and is backstage when a backstage manager tells you it’s time. There will be two to three backstage moms for each class. If we have too many volunteers for a group you may be asked to work with children from another group. Backstage moms will walk their group backstage and then must stay far back from the wings so that the teachers can take over. After your class finishes their final performance you are also responsible for making sure each costume and all coordinating accessories are hung up, or put away, in the proper location. All backstage moms are the only moms that can stay for lunch in the dressing rooms.
*Costume Organizer at the 2ND SHOW These two people will assist stage moms and organize the costumes onto racks as the dancers finish with them. Stage moms and dancers will bring costumes to you to be hung on a hanger to be placed in numerical order. The racks are to be slid into the hall after they have all been collected so they can be put into the UHaul and are organized for "Costume Put-Away Day" the next morning.
