Backstage moms: Classes with dancers age 8 and under must have a backstage mom. You will still see the show from the audience and not need a ticket to the show.


Costume parents: Carry a light bin of the class's costumes to the theater and return it to Principle Dance after the show.


Ushers: Take tickets and hand out programs before the show begins.


Ticket & keepsake table: Sell tickets and keepsakes before the show begins and during intermission. You will still see the entire show from the audience.


Transporters: If you have a van or truck and are willing to drive to and fro the studio and auditorium, we would greatly appreciate your help! Here's how it works: we'll load your vehicle with costume bins or set/props. At a designated time, you will drive the stuff one way and we'll unload it. You will be reimbursed for gas.
