Stairway to the Stars
Recital Volunteers help to make our performances go smoothly! Your willingness to help is very much appreciated!
Backstage, Line-Up Hallway and Dressing Room Managers: These volunteers oversee that everyone gets lined up in the correct order and that they get on and off the stage quickly and safely. All of the volunteers work at Dress Rehearsal and both Recitals.
Dance Class Moms: There are 2 moms per set of dance classes. Both moms help at Dress Rehearsal and then one works the 1:00 recital and one works the 6:00 recital. Both moms are welcome to work at both shows! You will need to arrive on Friday for Dress Rehearsal by 4:30PM. You will need to arrive on Saturday by 11:30AM for the 1:00 show and 4:30 for the 6:00 show. Our teen classes do not have class moms. Tumbling classes also do not have class moms as they perform first in the show and then have a class mom for their dance classes.
If you sign up to be a Class Mom and would like to enlist the help of other moms in the class, please feel free to do so. Every mother is responsible for dressing her own child, but they don’t necessarily stay in the dressing room with them. As a Class Mom you will remain with the class in the dressing room and when they line-up in the backstage hallway. You will need a badge from us so that you will be easily recognizable as a Class Mom. You will need to supervise the class as well as double check that they all have on the correct costume, tights and accessories. You will want to spray down wispy hair, be sure hair accessories are on the correct side and just in general make sure that everyone is ready to go.
Feel free to bring some activities!
Once your class is done performing, their moms will come pick them up and you are free to go.
Please note that Class Moms are responsible for the listed set of classes. If there is a ballet, jazz and tap dance for your set of classes you must stay with them until they have performed all of their routines even if your child is not in all of the classes.
Don’t hesitate to ask if you need anything! Thank you in advance!!
