BSG Volunteers

To continue with the long-time Baltimore County Recreation & Parks community approach, BSG has parent volunteers that help us run our program smoothly.  You are welcome to seek out these wonderful people to discuss any program questions or concerns you may have. 

Danielle Stewart, BSG Chairperson 

Danielle’s duties include: attending monthly Rec Council meetings, assisting with session registration, and other program events, fundraisers and administrative duties.  She also serves as our program liaison between our parents and the Rec Council.  Danielle’s daughter has been a BSG dancer for over 5 years!  She can be reached at

Amanda Clauser, BSG Treasurer

​Amanda's duties include: receiving and recording tuition payments, making sure student accounts are up to date, and keeping our expenses organized.  Amanda has two daughters that have been part of the BSG family for several years.  She can be reached at

BSG Volunteer Committees

Additional opportunities to volunteer and help BSG to run smoothly are listed below.  If you do not volunteer for a committee at the time of registration or Open House, then you will be assigned to one.  Please note that very few of the committees require more than a few hours of your time for the entire dance year.   There is also the option of opting out of volunteering and donating $25 to our program. 


Members of this committee assist in coordinating and organizing program fundraisers.  Examples of past fundraisers: Yankee Candle, Joe Corbi’s Pizza, Restaurant Nights, Bingo Night and Date Night, Reisterstown Festival concession stand, and recital Candygrams & flower sales.  We are always looking for new and exciting fundraisers, and parents to run them!

Backstage Moms (Pre K & K): Members of this committee volunteer to remain backstage during the rehearsal and recital to assist with costume & shoe changes, trips to the potty and, of course, getting on and off stage!  (grades 1-12): Members of this committee assist dancers backstage with quick costume changes between dances. 

Rehearsal Babysitters (grades 1-4): All parents for grades 1-4 take turns babysitting the dancers during Saturday and evening recital rehearsals.  These parents provide activities and snacks for the dancers while they wait to dance.
