Bravo’s 12th Annual Recital “1-2-3 VEGAS BABY!” will be held on SATURDAY JUNE 23, 2018 at the Times Union Center for the Performing Arts, Moran Theater.  Download the RECITAL PACKET here.  

**BACKSTAGE VOLUNTEERS**

We will be needing 2 backstage volunteers for each class—some classes may require 3, depending on size of class. Backstage Volunteers will need to attend all rehearsals from beginning to end, and remain backstage with the children during the show from beginning to end. Backstage Volunteers play an important role in making the recital come together! If you are interested, please sign up at the front desk.

BACKSTAGE VOLUNTEERS MEETING will be held on Monday June 4, 2018 at 7:00pm.
