The "Friends" Studio

Ballet Idaho has kicked off the new 2009-2010 season with the opening of the Academy and the Nutcracker Auditions. We are gearing up now for our first performance and setting the stage for the rest of the year! As I say all this, I can only think about how much help we need to carry out everything we want to do. With that being said I want to invite you to become a friend of Ballet Idaho. As a "friend" you play a crucial role in ensuring the continued vitality of Ballet Idaho by participating in fundraising events, dance advocacy and other activities that keep our non-profit going! There are small jobs and then there are definitely some larger production tasks that require a volunteer base that is insurmountable. Your commitment big or small means so much to us. So if you have something to offer, even if it's just one day, or a few hours. We have lots of different opportunities, check out the list below and give us a call! Family Series—Take tickets for our pre-performance of Swan Lake Idaho on September29th, 2009 Performances—Each year Ballet Idaho performs Ballet Idaho Boutique- Merchandise is sold at our performances, and we need volunteers to assist with sales. Dance Academy—Ballet Idaho's academy has a number of meetings, rehearsals, performances, etc. that occur throughout the year Nutcracker—During the Nutcracker auditions, rehearsals and performances, volunteers assist with registration, chaperoning and food. This is our largest production and requires the most volunteers for. It is lots of fun to be behind the scenes during such a huge event and see what it takes to pull it off. We need you help! Without you itwouldn't happen. Fundraising Events—Serve on an events committee, assist with auctions, work at the event, serve as a table captain, or assist with invitations and other mailings. These are always fun! Check our website for upcoming events.
    Well, I think that wraps it up for today. We would love to have you as a "Friend" of our Ballet and the Academy. For more information and to sign up for any of our events. Just give us a shout. We can never have too many volunteers. Thanks, Durea
