Cumming Dance Academy
Thank you for volunteering as a Backstage Mom and/or Volunteer for Cumming Dance Academy's 2019 "Under the Big Top" Performances May 29 - June 2, 2019. Please be sure to read through this entire page even if you always volunteer backstage. We have some new information for you!
It is our wish to make this experience a pleasant and enjoyable one for each student and audience member - and you are a big part of that! You will have an opportunity to see your child's performance from the side of the stage; the best seat in the house! You will also share in the excitement that energizes the backstage area while a show is in performance.
You are a vital part of our performance even though you are behind the scenes. We have a smooth running backstage atmosphere with guidelines that have been tested and proven to work for 15 years. We kindly ask you rely on our experience to ensure we continue to stay organized and efficient. Without you, we couldn't have a performance which is why CDA provides you with one (1) complimentary ticket to the show of your choice* if you sign up to be a Backstage Mom! Please note that because we have reserved seating now, the complimentary ticket will be in a block of seats reserved for volunteer tickets. We do not have the ability to seat you with any other tickets for a particular show. Also, please note that after tickets go on sale, we may not be able to accommodate your ticket request because we will have a limited number of tickets per show for backstage moms. You will need to contact Terry Fort-Bartlett to see if a ticket for the show of your choice is still available.
*You will need to e-mail Miss Terry at [email protected] to let her know which show you want to get a complimentary ticket to. Only one complimentary ticket is alloted per backstage mom no matter how many shows you sign up to volunteer. For example, if you sign up to be a backstage mom at the Wednesday and Friday shows, you will only receive one complimentary ticket, not two. If you sign up for eight shows, you will receive one complimentary ticket, not eight.
By signing up to be a Backstage Mom you are agreeing to be at the show one hour prior to the beginning of the performance and to stay after the performance until all of your dancers have been picked up by a parent. Please only sign up for one volunteer slot per show, even if your dancer is in a combonation class or in multiple classes/dances to ensure we have enough help with each dancers costume changes, etc. Backstage, you will assist the dancers with costume changes, potty breaks, snacks, entertainment, gather and check off rental costumes for each dancer and more. It is a flurry of activity as the excitement of the performance fills the backstage area.
We will send out more information via e-mail for your reference once we get closer to the show dates. You will also receive a reminder e-mail two days prior to the date of the show. So, please be sure that you enter your e-mail address correctly.
We have Backstage Mom Coordinators who are on hand at any moment to assist you. The Backstage Mom in charge of your particular show will introduce herself to you prior to dancers being allowed backstage. A Backstage Mom Coordinator is also available at the show rehearsals in case you have any questions prior to show time.
In the meantime, please contact CDA's Marketing Associate and Backstage Mom Coordinator, Amberly Benson, at [email protected] if you have any questions.
Thank you again for your commitment to Cumming Dance Academy! Miss Niki & our entire staff appreciate your continued support to further the performance experience for our young dancers!
