Cast Handbook: Lincoln Midwest Ballet Guild
Lincoln Midwest Ballet Guild was formed in 1991 to help support dance in the community, and especially the activities of Lincoln Midwest Ballet Company. The Guild sponsors a number of projects that directly benefit the Company such as:
- Providing educational outreach programs such as Backstage at the Ballet, a project that takes Company artists and dancers into one elementary school each year for a 3-day residency program. Children learn about choreography, make-up, costuming, and all the other elements that are necessary for The Nutcracker production.
- Fund-raising to help the Company financially. These projects include helping with various projects such as Nutracker picture buttons, shirt and make-up sales, and decorating pointe shoes to sell in the Nutcracker Boutique.
- Recruiting volunteers to help with sewing costumes, boutique and rose sales, supervision and security at the Lied Center, and other special projects.
- Communicating with families about Guild activities via email.
We appreciate the many volunteers who donate their time and talents to help create such a successful relationship with the Lincoln Midwest Ballet Company. Guild meetings are open to everyone. For a small membership fee, it is a chance to be with friends you already have and to make some great new friends. Come and join us!
