To become a member of the Volunteer Corps you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old or accompanied by an adult

Please note:

  • Volunteer Corps members do not usher at performances.
  • The busiest time of the year for all Corps members is during December during the ballet’s Nutcracker season. On average, about 10 volunteers are needed for each Nutcracker performance. We do keep busy during the rest of the year, but not on a large scale.
