This is an opportunity to help your child’s class get ready. When you are a chaperone, you are part of the action. Having class parents chaperone the children is the best way to keep the backstage area organized and the children safe.
What do Chaperones do? – You are with your child and his/her class the whole length of the recital and their part of the rehearsal. You help the children line up and go to the stage. When they come off stage, all excited, you are right there to congratulate them. If you have dancers in your group that have multiple dances, you will help change dancer’s costumes and hair styles.
Commitment – All chaperones must commit to helping out with both the dress rehearsal June 16th and performance June 17th. Chaperones will need to arrive prior to dancer arrival time.
Who can chaperone? – Any parent can be a chaperone. We will have a set number of chaperones per class depending on the class size. Parents who have chaperoned in previous years will be given preference.
Free tickets for Chaperones – Chaperones will receive 2 free tickets to the show.
Can I see my child perform if I’m a chaperone? – Yes! Parents get to see their child perform from the side of the stage, up close and personal in the wings of the stage.
