TAG's Dance Captain program encourages responsibility and respect amongst our cast & RATs. It is designed to maintain a calm and functional environment at rehearsals and performances. Students from each casting group that express leadership qualities may be invited to serve as Dance Captains, and accepted the following responsibilities:
Attend the Dance Captain training meeting and all scheduled rehearsals & performances.
Lead morning warm-ups when asked.
Keep their group together at all times, during rehearsals and performances, and when walking between backstage and the wings.
Listen for cues from the Cast Managers (RATs) or Backstage Managers (adult volunteers) and respond accordingly.
If someone in their group has an issue, notify an adult and respond accordingly.
Keep their groups calm & quiet and keep up morale.
Be a positive role model and leader!
As rehearsals progress, the groups will learn to look to the Dance Captains for guidance and direction. The four TAG character qualities are:
Be Kind (showing kindness and gratitude to others and joyfully working as a team).
Be Courageous (taking initiative to do what is right and staying positive and patient without complaint).
Be Thoughtful (being responsible to know and do what is expected without being asked).
There’s no place like home (exuding qualities that strengthen our LHE community).
We thank our Dance Captains, in advance, for their efforts in helping to make this a wonderful experience for everyone!
Please refer to the Calendar for dates/times for the training meeting. Dance Captains are noted with an asterisk on the Company Posting and will be highlighted in the program for their efforts.
