Education Program Volunteer Opportunities

The Nutcracker School Shows Ushers


Help us welcome 8,800 Central Texas elementary school students and teachers attending Ballet Austin’s The Nutcracker School Shows In-Person Performances at the Long Center. The mission of these shows is to provide one act of a live ballet performance experience in a large theater at a minimal cost for local elementary students.

Ballet Austin Guild members and other community volunteers greet school children at their buses, escort them to the theater for the one-hour performance by Ballet Austin, and then safely escort them back to their buses after the show.

Volunteers can sign up for one or both days. Shifts start at 8:30am and end at approximately 1:30pm. This year, we will provide snacks and a light lunch, thanks to the generosity of our Nutcracker School Shows Sponsor, H-E-B.

2022 The Nutcracker School Shows Volunteer Schedule:

  • Wednesday December 7: 8:30am to 1:30pm
  • Thursday December 8: 8:30am to 1:30pm
