Firstly a massive thank you for volunteering to chaperone and be a part of the backstage madness! Each year that BW Dance Works grow, and have bigger and better annual shows, we are so grateful for the parents like yourselves who offer their evenings. We really could not do it without you.
Dancers are dropped off to designated coloured area.
Please can I ask you all to arrive 12.45pm. The team leaders of each group will sign each group in. All of the u18 helpers (senior students) you have listed will take dancers into their designated areas. Everything will be sign posted. Reminder of groups, team leaders and senior student you have are here:
Once dancers are all inside changing areas, no dancers should leave until 3pm (after the show!)
Read register specks for info on what dancers do what dances.
Check all dancers hair is neat & tidy – hair boxes are located on table by the doors if you need anything!
Get all dancers into their first costume as soon as possible, using the running order to work out order of dances
NO VISIBLE UNDERWEAR
NO NAIL POLISH
NO HAIR ACCESSORIES *except those provided*
Line dancers up once ready. Our runner Rebecca will come and get your group as and when they are needed to be at the side of the stage.
Lay out 2nd / 3rd costumes and be prepped for a quick change.
*Some dancers only do 1 dance*
Once each dance is done, all costumes are to be collected and out into boxes by the door.
Once all dances are done, all dancers are to be in black leggings, black & gold T-Shirts then lined up ready for finale. Again, Rebecca our runner will get you when its time.
To go home, dancers take EVERYTHING with them EXCEPT costumes and accessories. Dancers can go home in black leggings and black / gold T-Shirts.
Dancers are to leave and go to coloured area (same area as drop off.) Please ensure everyone in your group has located a parent at their drop off.
AFTER EACH DANCE IS DONE, COSTUMES ARE TO GO INTO CLEAR BIN BAGS THEN INTO THE EMPTY BOXES BESIDE THE DOORS. ALL ACCESSORIES GO INTO THE SANDWICH BAGS THEN INTO THE BOX.
Leave rooms as tidy as can be, but Miss B will be in to prep rooms for the evening shows after.
