Benefits For Helping Backstage

Gives Benefits For Helping Backstage

Every recital needs moms to help backstage to help the dancers. Give incentives for those parents who sign up to help. Give 2 free tickets to them if they help backstage. Reserve 2 seats in rows 1 to 4 for parents who help. Give each helping parent a matching recital t-shirt. State clearly that parents will still be able to see their child dance on stage, even though they are working backstage during the show. Have a disignated area for backstage helpers to sit or stand to see their child when they to out on stage to dance. Acknowledge parent helpers in the program and in any speech that you may give at the end of your show. Don't forget to later send thank you notes! If parents feel appreciated, then they will sign up to help again next year.
