Festival Season

Schedule During Festival Weeks

- to ensure we are seeing our students in between festival performance class schedules for April will be adjusted. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding

- This means your class will most likely be adjusted to a different day of the week and time. We do our best to keep it as regular as possible however it is not always possible as we have to get 5 days of classes condensed often down into 3 days.

- More details will be attached to your April newsletter

Performance Times

- Times are being added to your Studio Director Account as they come in. Please remember they could change. Any changes will be made to your Studio Director account.

- Solos/Duets- please read the emails sent by the office carefully for your dates/ times.

Dropping Off/ Picking Up Your Dancer

- Please meet your teacher in the rehearsal room 1 hour before their scheduled performance time

* Festival can run up to 30 minutes ahead of schedule

* This allows us to warm up and rehearse properly. As well as problem solve any last minute issues.

- After our category is complete and adjudication is over please meet me back in the rehearsal room. This is a very busy space so we ask

* that if you choose to take pictures please do so in the lobby or the hall way

* be respectful to the other groups/ routines rehearsing as you enter and exit the room. Please walk around the perimeter of the room so no one is bumped into or disrupted.

Festival Hints

- Get ready as much as you can at home. Dressing rooms will be busy with the older dancers who don't have time to return to their home/hotel to get ready for their next routine.

- Admission- Advance tickets are not required for festivals. There will be an admission table in the lobby. Please purchase a day pass from there upon your arrival.

- Please give yourself time to park. The DCC is a very busy multi use facility and quite often has multiple events happening on the weekends especially.

- Admission- Most festivals will charge an admission fee. Please make sure to bring cash with you to make it easier on yourself. Dancers do not pay an admission fee.

- If you have any questions or concerns about the festival please send an email to the office. Festival rules state that concerns must be submitted in writing by the studio owner.

- If you decide to stay and watch other categories please ensure that your dancers costume is covered up. A housecoat is a easy and quick way to keep your dancer's hidden while in the theatre

Theatre Etiquette

- Please be respectful of the roped off area around the adjudicator and writer. Do not sit in this area.

- Do not enter or exit the theatre while performances are taking place

- Help everyone find a seat during peak watching times by not leaving a single empty seat between you and the next party. Quickly being able to seat the audience also helps festivals stay on time.

Due to the bright stage lights it is important to highlight dancers facial features so that we can see their expressions on stage :)
