Company Hours

    With the exception of our teachers, our staff members are unpaid volunteers. We are most appreciative of the support and assistance of our parents to enable Twin Cities School of Dance to continue to fulfill its mission of providing quality dance instruction and performance opportunities to the children of this community. As part of your child’s involvement in the Twin Cities Ballet Company, all company parents are required to complete the following volunteer hours:

    Senior Company - 15 hours per semester / 30 hours total for the year
    Junior & Apprentice Company - 12 hours per semester / 24 hours total for the year.
    Performance Company - 12 hours total for the year.

    When you make a contribution, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page, so that you may receive credit for your contribution.

    These company hours can also be fulfilled by the dancer. They must be approved by a board member in advance. If hours are not fulfilled, a rate of $10 per hour for all time not fulfilled will be charged. No exceptions will be made.

    To fulfill your volunteer hours, the Parents Guild has set up an online sign up for neededvolunteers. You are encouraged to participate in their easy to use grouponSignUpGenius.com by clicking this link:http://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050D4BAAAC22A13-volunteer. Before you can sign up for hours on this site, your email address needs to be added to the list. Please contact jeanetteasmith@yahoo.com if you are part of the studio and are not yet added to this list, or you are having trouble accessing the site.

    The following are some examples of ways you can earn your hours. The number of people needed is noted for some tasks. Allocation of tasks will be determined by the board on a first come/first serve basis. Please identify what you are willing to contribute, sign the form, and submit to the front desk along with your first Company payment.
