Parents of Tiny Dancers

You are welcome to stay with your dancer backstage if it makes them or you feel more

comfortable. If your dancer is performing in Act 1, please bring them to their dressing room

upon your arrival to the theatre. During intermission you will be able to go backstage to get

them so they can watch the rest of the show. If your dancer is performing in Act 2, they can

sit on your lap for the first half then please bring them backstage to their dressing room

during intermission. They will remain there until the end and be able to go back onto the

stage with their teacher and group to take a bow. ANY dancers are welcome to come

backstage that are in the audience before Finale to line up to take a bow (we encourage it!).
