7.  BACK STAGE PASSES– If your child is in a “Baby Class”, you will receive a pass to go back stage. No one is permitted back stage without a pass.  Please understand that it is for the safety of your children.  

PLEASE NOTE…THE FOLLOWING CLASES ARE CONSIDERED “BABY” CLASSES:  Mon 3:00 T/J  /   

Tues 1:15 T/J & Tues 1:30 M&M - Tuesday 2:00 T/J & 2:45 HH - Thurs 3:00 T/J – Sat 11:00 T/J

All “Baby” moms will receive a pass to enable you to enter back stage at any time to check on your child.  Baby classes will be performing BOTHtheir numbers in the SAME act.  You must have your child back stage at the beginning of their act with both pairs of dance shoes labeled with their name.  A teacher will be with them at all times.  Remember, most children are better without their parents.  After they perform, you take them into the audience to watch the remainder of the show.  They will receive a trophy before they leave back stage.  THEY DO NOT NEED A TICKET TO SIT ON YOUR LAP HOWEVER IF YOU WANT TO BUY A SEAT FOR THEM YOU CAN.  

IMPORTANT REMINDERS

    Videotaping is strictly prohibited. Professional videos will be available for purchase at the show.

    Children must arrive ½ hour before show time in full costume with all their dance shoes labeled with their name.  Parents are to drop children off at the back stage door upon their arrival.  Children will be escorted to the dressing room & supervised by Staff.

    Children will be released directly off the stage at the end of the recital one class at a time (with the exception of “Baby” classes).  We will clear out the audience & ask that one parent per child remains to safely escort their child out of the theatre

    All children must remain BACK STAGE the entire recital.  At no time will performers be permitted to leave the back stage area.  A video monitor will be set up on a movie screen displaying the show for them to view while waiting to perform.  All students (with the exception of the “Baby” classes) will take part in the finale & at this time will receive their trophy then be released to their parents.   Estimated show time…2 hours!
