Kate Bostick, the Backstage Coordinator, will be at the door to direct you to your child’s dressing room. A Parent Volunteer will be there to check your child in. Please put her phone number in your phone in case you need to get ahold of me or her once we’re at the stage.
Kate Bostick cell # (513) 238-7822
Ms. Dena’s cell # (513) 633-8542 (I will not be answering or checking my phone once rehearsals begin).

*REHEARSAL CALL TIMES are 20 minutes before he/she is needed to be ready and on stage. (Please be on time!)
-Park on the east side of the Wyoming High School. Enter at the STAGE DOOR, which will be labeled with a Beyond the Barre sign. If your dancer is not there on time, we will be calling you!

Each group has two parent volunteers. Please escort your child to the designated area and help him/her get ready (coat off, ballet shoes on, costume on, etc...)
Before you leave, make sure your child has used the restroom! Then, have him/her sit down quietly and wait for her rehearsal time. Each child should bring a quiet activity (books, coloring pages, etc.) You may then leave and return at your dancer's dismissal time. (Only parent volunteers are permitted to stay.)

SNACKS/DRINKS- For dancers that will be at the stage for over 2 hours, pack a NUT-FREE snack and labeled water bottle.
