All Creative Dancers will be escorted off the stage after their dance. Creative Dancers should remain in the audience for curtain call. All other dancers are required to stay in the dressing area/backstage for the entire performance. They are casted in the closing number and return for a curtain call at the end of the show.
Only stage crew are allowed backstage. PLEASE DROP OFF YOUR DANCER(S) AT THE BACKSTAGE DOOR. A CREW MEMBER WILL ASSIST THEM TO THEIR ASSIGNED AREA. It is important to pack items such as coloring books, activity books, small and quiet games, or any other activity that will keep your dancer(s) occupied during the wait backstage. Performers should come dressed in their costume and be ready to perform. There is absolutely no food or drink allowed backstage.
Cooperation, patience and understanding are the key to a successful dance performance. I am looking forward to a fabulous performance and sharing this memorable moment with your dancers.
