Hello Dancers and families, Well, today is our final performance of Sleeping Beauty. I am very pleased with how well it is going, and with the audience turnout! Thank you all for your support.
I am noticing that things are running much smoother now backstage and in the dressing room than at previous shows. I see a lot of effort from parents and dancers to make this happen. It really makes a good difference.
After today’s show we need to clean up. I will have a list of jobs needing to be done. As usual, I engage the help of all the older dancers, and they do a great job. Learning about the behind the scenes responsibilities is good preparation for them when they head out of here and want to be part of other dance and theater groups.
Adult help is always welcome, though. Find a crew to join up with and the work will get done even faster. Good jobs to jump in on are getting the folding chairs put away and the the movie seats back along the sides.
The seating area must be well swept and the movie seat platforms vacuumed before they are pushed back. This prevents a build up of debris.
Anyway, the goal is to get the jobs done and the theater looking ready for the next event.
We may need a dad to assist with moving the dance floor back into storage. I will let you know about that later.
See you all soon!
