Ticket Limits:
Due to the size of the theater and number of students participating, it is necessary for us to limit the number of tickets ordered per family to 10 for each show. A ticketing error will occur if you try to purchase more, your seats will be lost, and your order will not be completed.

Extra Tickets:
All families will be notified by email if extra tickets for the shows become available. These seats will not be with original orders and will not be available for purchase no earlier than 2 weeks prior to the performance.

To Purchase:
Tickets are $15.00.
Tickets can be purchased online with a credit card or may be dropped off, faxed or mailed to the office.

Pictures and Videos:
Absolutely no flash cameras are permitted in the theater at any time!!!
Please understand how dangerous this is to the dancer. Flash pictures make it very difficult for our technical crew to design our lighting, and will also ruin the video taping. Please let family members know also.
Memory Makers are professional photographers who will be present during dress rehearsals.
 Each class will be required to pose for a class picture during their rehearsal time. You may purchase individual or group pictures at that time.

*Due to the large number of students who participate in the Spring Concert. Please understand that dividing the shows is a very difficult process, and we do our best to please everyone! We spend several months dividing the shows
and show orders down to the only possible orders.

CLASS ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED FOR PARTICIPATION!
 With the show just a short time away, it is imperative that your dancer attends all remaining classes.
 If he/she is sick, but not contagious, the dancer should still come and watch.
 If any dancer has any unexcused absences per class, they will not be permitted to participate in that dance in the spring concert. They are permitted two excused absences.
 If the dancer does not participate, please remember you are still responsible for payment and purchase of the
costume(s).
If you have any other questions, please see your instructor or email the school! Thank you for your time and sharing your dancer(s) with all of us. We have had a great year of dance!
