The Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre is hosting an usher training seminar for those looking to work at the upcoming PTDT concerts.
The seminar will run from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Saturday at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop, 2720 Del Rio Place in Davis. The instructor is Jan Fiore, who was house and lobby manager for the company for several seasons.
The next concert series is the Davis Dance Project at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1, and 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2.
Training includes becoming familiar with the PTDT concert policies and how to implement them with tact and diplomacy, keeping in mind that the policies exist to provide everyone in the audience with a positive live-performance experience. Prospective ushers also will be familiarized with the overall structure of the concert.
Usher tasks include taking tickets, handing out programs and assisting audience members in and out of the theater during the performance. Prospective ushers also will learn how to handle inquiries from guests and what to do in case of emergency.
This training is intended for people who are at least 16 years old who can stand for at least an hour at a time. The dress code for ushers must be followed for performances — neat appearance; black pants, skirt or dress; white shirt and black jacket optional.
Those interested in the training are asked to call the studio at 530-756-3949 to be put on the list.
