Theater Etiquette
We work very hard to give your dancers a professional show experience.  To do this we need your help.  Our audiences should behave in the same manner as they would if they were watching a professional Ballet or Broadway Show.  Here are a few guidelines:
Please do not put your feet up on the chairs, please do not holler names or sayings from the audience, please pick up after yourself, no exiting or entering while dancers are dancing.  Be courteous to those around you who are trying to watch the show and courteous to the kids on stage.
