Stage Moms: There will be 1 to 2 stage moms for each dance. There will be a mandatory meeting for stage moms on Saturday, July 10th @ 1:15 p.m. at the studio. We are still welcoming more stage help; stage moms will receive a complimentary ticket. Stage moms are the ONLY parents aloud backstage or in the dressing rooms. Stage moms will be wearing badges and children will be signing in and out with security when you drop them at the stage doors. If you are not a stage mom, please be seated in the auditorium while you enjoy the show. All dancers must remain back stage for the entire show. Releasing dancers prior to the end of the show is a serious safety hazard. Please do not leave early; we want you to enjoy the show! After dress rehearsal, we will announce for you to pick up your dancers at the South entrance/security checkpoint. Please have this document handy with your order of routines as a reference. Dress rehearsal should finish by approximately 12:30 p.m.
