Should I buy my dancer a "FINALE" ticket?
No, you don't have to buy your dancer a ticket. We buy the balcony for our dancers and have amazing parent volunteers who take care of the children during the show. Yes, they will take them to the bathroom if needed and touch up lipstick or hair before they dance (if you leave lipstick and hairspray out and easily available for them to do so!)
Do parents need to come backstage to help their dancer during the show?
No, you do not need to come backstage to change your dancer if he/she has multiple numbers in a show. Just make sure everything is ready, labelled and organized for our great Moms who help in the change rooms!
You can speak directly to them with specific instructions for each number - please have the costume check lists attached to each costume.
How will I know who is a volunteer?
Volunteers wear easily identifiable black Tri-City Dance Centre volunteer shirts and generally have name tags on too! They are all experienced moms of our dancers or older dancers.
