Parents who are volunteering should establish a “student” account in our online registration system. This will allow us to send email and communicate directly with the volunteer.
You will notice that many of the jobs involve assisting with concession sales. Tiffany’s Dance Academy is very excited to announce that 100% of the concession profits will be donated to Bay Area Dance Company so that it may put on more spectacular performances during the 2012-13 Season! Let’s make this the best year ever for Bay Area Dance Company!
1. Backstage Volunteers
Your job is to supervise your specific class during the show.
Twinkle Star Showcase Volunteers arrive about 30-40 minutes early and stay with their class until they are ready to go onstage. Volunteers can then take their seat in the auditorium as soon as their class is ready to perform. This means Twinkle Star Volunteers need to purchase a ticket for themselves.
Big Show Backstage Volunteers arrive about 45 minutes before show time. They can watch the class perform from the side of the stage since they need to be with the class for the ENTIRE time before the show and after they perform. Tip: bring fun, quiet things to keep your kids busy (i.e. iPads, iTouches, coloring books and crayons, memory games, go fish cards etc.)! This will make them happy and your life easier! Online registration is not allowed for this position. Please register for this job at your studio with your Studio Director.
Please arrive a half-hour before the performance! Meet house manager in the theater lobby. We usually open the doors to the theater about 20-30 minutes prior to the start of the show. Ushers help seat people before and during the show and also ensure that late arrivals to the theater are seated between (not during) dances. Ushers also monitor illegal video and flash photography and gently remind patrons that videotaping and flash photography are not permitted during the performances. Bring your own small flashlight so you can read seat numbers in the dark.
3. Concession/Flower Sales Volunteer
Help sell baked goods, flowers and drinks to recital patrons and performers. We will assign you either pre-performance or intermission sales.
Pre-performance: If you are signed up to help prior to a performance, please meet at the concession table about 30 minutes prior to the show.
Intermission: Anyone signed up for intermission concession sales must come out to the concession stand 2-3 numbers BEFORE intermission starts! If your dancer happens to be in one of those numbers, please just rush out as soon as possible! This is a short 20 minute fast-paced job.
4. Concession Suppliers (Snack, Soda and Water Volunteers Available)
This year we have decided to donate 100% of the concession profits to Bay Area Dance Company. To increase the size of our donation we are allowing “volunteers” to “donate” select items in lieu of volunteering for a job. Of course if you donate items that can be sold at the concession table you will still qualify to purchase your recital tickets one day early. Bring one of the following:
• 1 case (24 12 0z cans) of either Pepsi, Coke, Diet Pepsi, Diet Coke, Sprite, Root Beer, Dr.Pepper, Orange Soda
• 24 home-made brownies
• 24 home-made cookies
• 1 Costco type box of individually wrapped candy (M&Ms, Skittles, Snickers, Ring Pops, Rice
Crispy Treats, etc…).
• 1 Costco tub of brownie bites or other similar delicious treats
5. Baked Goods Suppliers – NO ITEMS WITH NUTS PLEASE!!
Bring 24 individually wrapped (2 per baggy) chocolate chip, oatmeal, or your favorite yummy cookies, brownies or treats! Bring your baked goods 1 hour prior to your performance. Pre-wrapping these will make life much easier on the concession volunteers and more sanitary for the consumers.
