RECITAL ETIQUETTE GUIDE

 At Flag City School of Dance, we want everyone to enjoy our Recital.  To enhance everyone’s enjoyment of the show, we believe in emphasizing rules of theatre etiquette.

  • The Magic of a Live Performance: When you attend live performances, please keep in mind that the performers can hear and see you. Your actions and reactions, positive, negative, or disruptive, can impact the performers’ success. All of the dancers have invested time and hard work into their performances, so please show them the respect and courtesy they deserve.

 

  •  Entering/Exiting: Do not leave the theatre during the performance unless it is an emergency. If you must get up, please wait until the dance on stage is finished. The same thing goes for re-entering the Theatre.  There will be an intermission that will permit an opportunity to stand-up, use the restroom, etc.
 
  • Silence & Store Your Technology: Upon entering the Theatre, please turn off cell phones, iPods, iPads, and any other electronic devices prior to the performance starting. (Or better yet, leave them in the car!)  You should never speak, text, or play games on your electronic devices during a performance. You should also not check your device during a performance since the backlight is incredibly bright and distracting to other audience members. 
 
  • Noises: Please refrain from talking, yelling, or using noisemakers during the performances. This is very distracting to our dancers. If you need to unwrap or retrieve anything from your bag, please do this prior to the show starting or during intermission. Any type of noise during the performance can be incredibly distracting to your neighbors.
 
  • Photography/videography: For your convenience and enjoyment, the Recital will be professionally videotaped.  Please remember that photography and videography are not allowed during the recital performances.  NO video set up of any kind is permitted
 
  • Food/Drink: Food and drink is not allowed in the theatre.
 
  • Curtain Call: The Performance is over at the conclusion of curtain call (when every dancer comes onstage to take their final bow). Audience members should stay for the entire performance and should not leave early during the curtain call. Please stay in your seat until the performance is over and the house lights are raised. Then, exit with the rest of the audience. This policy is in place to show respect to all of our performers.  Please discuss with your dancer – absolutely NO performer is to approach the curtain for any reason when the curtain closes after Curtain Call.
 
  • Lady Gaga says, “I live for the applause…”  NOT for the sound of candy wrappers and noisy children, and neither do our dancers. If a child starts to fuss, take them to the lobby.  Remember to respect those around you who wish to continue to enjoy the show.

 

  • Backstage: No one is permitted backstage except Recital volunteers and students.  Dancers will stay backstage with their class during the entire performance.  No dancer may be picked up before the show is over.  When the show is over, parents may pick children up at the stage door.
 
  •  Our policies are designed with your child’s best interest in mind and we than you in advance for following them. Please make sure all of your invited guests are aware of all of these policies as well. 

And, most importantly, remember to enjoy the show! Our dancers have worked very hard, and they will greatly appreciate your applause and enthusiasm for the parts of the show that you enjoy.

_____I have read and agree to the Recital Etiquette Terms and Conditions.  I will also make certain that any family or invited guests who attend our Recital are aware of and agree to abide by these Terms and Conditions as well.
