Showcase Dance Studio relies on the assistance of many dedicated volunteers to provide a high-quality performance experience for your child(ren). The children benefit from this volunteer effort, so we hope that you will become an enthusiastic member of our volunteer pool. Please note you will be volunteering at the dress rehearsal and the recital if you volunteer. There are many positions available. We encourage every family to volunteer and welcome any contribution you are willing to make. All backstage parent volunteers are required to wear our Backstage Crew T-shirt. If you have questions, please contact the office at (703)368-0555 between 5-9pm (Monday -Thursday). Thank you for your involvement with your child at Showcase Dance Studio.
Please note volunteers will be required to stay backstage for the entire performance. No exceptions.
Ensure that children are safe and accounted for when not onstage. Check for proper attire and escort children to and from the stage for their performances. If you think your child may need assistance with toileting or will have difficulty with behavior we require that you volunteer as a class mom for their class.
