Room Moms:
Every year Renee Timchuk, our backstage coordinator, likes to do a quick informational meeting about being a Room Mom Volunteer.   Last year we also had a request for a meeting that would help answer questions about the whole recital experience for our new dancers and their families. This meeting is optional, but if this is your first time being a "Room Mom Volunteer" or if you are brand new to Elite and have a few questions about the recital, hair, make up, rehearsals, etc., we highly encourage you to attend. The meeting will last about 30 minutes and will be held in the lobby at the studio.


Recital Room Mom and New Student Informational Meeting

Tuesday, June 2nd, 7:00pm


If you are unable to attend one of these meetings, but you have "Room Mom" questions or would like to sign up to help, please email Renee Timchuk at
