Saint Louis Ballet School
Welome to the Saint Louis Ballet School 2021 Recital Volunteer registration! We are so very excited to be back together to perform our recital in person. As in the past we are asking for recital volunteers, and this year everything has been done to ensure we are doing so with COVID safety measures in place.
Please note - if you volunteer as a Dressing Room Chaperone, this is actually two shifts. One for the dress rehearsal and one for the recital. This is to ensure the same chaperone works with the same class of students each time for familiarity. Don't worry, we will lead you and inform when it's your class' time to go to the stage. Just help them stay on task and be ready.
If you volunteer for Recital 3 Friday, June 11 7:00 pm Recital - Please join us for Recital 3's Dress Rehearsal on Thursday, June 10, 4:30 - 8:30 pm.
If you volunteer for Recital 1 Saturday, June 12, 2:00 pm Recital - Please join us for Recital 1's Dress Rehearsal on Thursday, June 10, 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm.
If you volunteer for Recital 2 Saturday, June 12, 6:00 pm Recital - Please join us for Recital 2's Dress Rehearsal on Friday, June 11, 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm.
For our Dressing Room Chaperones - Classroom chaperones will need to oversee the students assisgned to them in the room. Included tasks: take attendance for your room, make sure they are performance ready with tights, costume and shoes on, remind or help touch-up whispies and make up (students will need to arrive with hair and make up already done so doing hair and make up is not a part of this job). This year chaperones will need to make sure masks stay on and oversee social interactions for covid safety. Chaperone parents in most cases will escort the class to backstage and once the students are in the care of a SLB staff or faculty member the chaperone can go to a designated front row of seats in the auditorium to watch. If it's a dress rehearsal day, the parent will bring them to the lobby for photos after their stage rehearsal then back to the dressing room.
When you are looking through this site and would like to volunteer for your child's dressing room, the name of the class in the title should help, however if you are unclear please reach out and we are happy to confirm which dressing room you should select. Feel free to email Kate ([email protected]) or email/call the Studio at 636-537-1998.
Any questions at all please reach out!
