As art educators, we feel that it is our responsibility to teach young people the appropriate audience etiquette. This also makes a more enjoyable performance for all audience members. These guidelines make sure our dancers give their best possible performance without distractions.
* Please refrain from talking during dance performances
* Enter and exit only between numbers
* All phones should be turned off or on silent
* All restless or crying infants should be removed from the performance area.
* For the safety of our dancers and integrity of our choreography, no photos or videos are
allowed to be taken.
* Please be kind to our volunteers they are also parents of dancers and just want the best
performance for their children and are helping to make that possible.
