THEATER POLICIES FOR PARENTS AND STUDENTS

  • STUDENTS AND PARENTS need to know the name of their Dance Number(s) and which part of shows student is in (LOWER OR UPPER School OR Both). Students should not wear regular underwear  under costumes and all visible tags should be removed.

  • CLASS UNIFORMS OR COSTUMES are to be worn for rehearsals as listed and hair in a bun.  Backstage assignments have been made to help with the program run smoothly.

  • SHOW ORDER is listed above and it will be posted in many locations.

  • QUESTIONS should be asked now so the director, teachers and backstage help are not bombarded during recital.

  • VIDEO , PHOTOGRAPHY OR RECORDING DEVICES are NOT allowed due to distraction and consideration of fellow audience patrons. The safety of all performers can also be compromised.  NO photography in allowed backstage!!!

  • ARRIVE EARLY DANCERS to all calls and you are required to sign-in and out at the backstage door. (Music school entrance) when you arrive or exit.  Dancers will not be released without a parent picking them up for safety purposes after a rehearsal or performance.
    Parents and audience patrons use the front door of the school.  If wheel chair assistance is needed please come in the front door and ask for help.
    REHEARSALS ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC AND PARENTS!

  • LABEL ALL BELONGINGS with a permanent pen on labels and inside shoes.  Dance Basics students, it really helps if you come dressed and put extra belongings in a basket (dance bag), with your name on it.  This way we can keep all your belongings together.

  • DO NOT BRING valuables, jewelry and money to the theater. SASPA is not responsible for any lost belongings.
    PROPERTY NOT labeled is almost impossible to figure out who the owner is.

  • REHEARSAL TIMES

    LOWER SCHOOL PERFORMERS must attend Friday May 31st in class attire and June 7th rehearsal in costume at SASPA 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Stage rehearsals are MANDATORY for SAFETY REASONS.

    UPPER SCHOOL PERFORMERS must attend Saturday May 31st in class attire and June 7th rehearsal in costume at SASPA  5-9:00 pm. This includes warm-up and organizing backstage.  Stage Rehearsals are  MANDATORY for SAFETY REASONS.

    UPPER SCHOOL PERFORMERS will have Saturday June 1st in class attire and June 8th in costume at SASPA  1-3:30 pm  if Friday night rehearsals don’t go well.  Work hard so you can have Saturday off after class. 

  • MISSED REHEARSALS by any students risk ruining the number and more importantly risk physical danger due to not knowing where to go in the dark and what is or isn’t dangerous on or off stage.  This also affects the performance of others in the number.  Teams DO NOT PRACTICE in pieces or as singles.

  • LAYER YOUR TIGHTS accordingly.  Plan your individual show accordingly.  Especially if you are in several numbers.

  • BALLET STUDENTS may have to purchase tan knee-high hose to wear over pink tights (for jazz) or full tan tights for jazz and tap depending on costuming requirements.  Plan ahead.
