Frequently Asked Questions:
Are seats able to be reserved?
No. To keep it fair for everyone, we do not allow anyone to reserve seats in the auditorium. To make sure you get a good seat, we recommend getting to the lobby by 5:30 when the auditorium is opened.
Am I allowed to take pictures/videos during recital?
NO! The use of cameras/phones during the performance is very distracting to the dancers on stage and to the patrons around you. It is strictly prohibited during recital. DVD's of each nights performance is available to purchase in the lobby.
Am I allowed to visit my dancer in their dressing room?
No. Parents may help their dancer get set up before the show, but we ask that all family members and guests remain in the lobby or auditorium. We have assigned at least two parent helpers for each class to assist the dancers get ready for each dance and take them to and from the stage. All you have to do is relax and enjoy their performance!
I have a family member that is handicapped, where do I go?
We will have several volunteers available that are working and taking tickets. Let them know when you arrive that you need assistance and they will gladly take you to the ramp entrance.
Can I purchase flowers for my dancer?
Yes! Flowers, concessions, and DVD's will be available to purchase in the lobby. You are welcome to come earlier
Does my preschool, kindergarten, or Tuesday I dancer have to stay for the full recital?
No. These dancers will perform their own finale right before intermission (the halfway point of the show). Unless they are in acro, hip hop, or contemporary, they can leave or stay and watch the rest of the performance in the audience.
Who is allowed to attend rehearsal?
Rehearsal is only open to dancers, teachers, and the class volunteers (during the time slot of their class). This keeps the dancers from getting distracted and allows for a smoother practice time.
