Why volunteer? Volunteering is a great opportunity to be a part of something magical!  You get a different perspective of what it takes to put one of our wonderful productions together AND you get to share this special time with your dancer in real-time. Plus, we couldn’t do all this without our parent volunteers! You are needed and appreciated!
Is volunteering required?
NUTCRACKER:                                         YES
DANCE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE:         NO
SPRING BALLET IN APRIL:                     YES
SPRING SHOWCASE(S) @ END OF SEASON:  NO, but it is imperative that parents volunteer for Spring Showcase performances to keep our younger dancers safe backstage.  There must be two adults with each class, levels Discover Dance through Ballet 3, Beginning Jazz through Jazz 3, Free Boys Dance, and Tiny Hoppers through Hip Hop 1 or 2 depending on age of the group.
What if I can’t volunteer for The Nutcracker or the Spring Ballet in April? You are required to pay a $50 opt-out volunteer fee: payable via signup genius volunteer link or at Studio West Dance Academy
What age must a volunteer be? Volunteers must be age 14+, be assertive AND friendly.  We want our volunteers to be in control, not be controlled by the young ones.
How do I sign up to volunteer? Sign-ups will be made available through Signupgenius.com (click link above). You will receive an email when sign-ups are open with a link AND you can access the link on the Studio West Dance Academy website by clicking on the Volunteer menu item. We try to have the sign-ups open before tickets go on sale.
Do I get anything if I volunteer? There are certain volunteer positions that you will receive a $35 Voucher that is valid for 1 year from the date you receive it.  The voucher is good towards a future Studio West Dance Theater performance fee or Spring Showcase participation fee!
Do I have to attend any training or meetings in order to volunteer? We will have mandatory parent volunteer meetings during your child’s auditions for The Nutcracker and Spring Ballet in April.  Our volunteer coordinator will go over specifics as well as answer your questions.
