Although no stage moms are needed this year, we will be asking for volunteers to help with traffic flow in and out of the theater as well as those that can help us sanitize the seats in between sections of the show. A volunteer form will be sent out soon.

By the way, it is not too late to return to the studio and be a part of this experience! However, we will need to know as soon as possible so that we can make sure we stay within the 250 people guideline. Contact pwilley@thacademyofdance.com if you have questions.

We are excited that our students will have the opportunity to perform on the big stage so that each student gets to have the experience of dancing with and among the other students with an appreciative audience!
