Recital Time Tips!

đź“ŚRecital Time Tips:  Audience Etiquette

Tip #1: When entering the theater take a quick note of where the exits are, just in case of an emergency.

Tip #2: Plan to turn off or silence all of your devices prior to the start of the show.  The sounds and glow of the screens are very disruptive. Additionally, photos and video recordings are not permitted so that everyone can enjoy the performance live!  Videos are available for sale!  

Tip #3: It is courteous to applaud after each routine in the recital, but please avoid shouting or screaming as it can be distracting to both the dancers on stage and to other audience members.

Tip #4: Avoid entering or exiting the theater while there are dancers performing onstage.  A good rule of thumb is to only move from your seat in between routines, if necessary.

Tip #5: If you have a baby or young child who is sitting with you and they become disruptive, please exit with them quickly and quietly between routines.

Tip #6: Refrain from talking or whispering with other audience members while the dancers are performing.  Quick comments in between routines are OK!

Tip #7: Don’t litter.  Please take care not to leave any belongings or trash.

Tip #8: Please stay for the entire show to be respectful of the dancers and teachers.  This will only be about an hour show!
