Working together as a team we’ll make this production a success and something we can all be proud of! Participation
has its commitment requirements. We want all performers to know their dances, look their best, and have an enjoyable experience.
You will be required to attend dance lessons during the rehearsal period. This is a commitment you must make for yourself
as well as for your fellow performers. If you are not able to make the commitment, choose to not participate.
In the best interest of the rest of the cast, we have the authority to dismiss any performer from any dance if we feel it
ATTEND ALL YOUR CLASSES! Make the
commitment to yourself and to the others in the cast. Do not make any outside commitments during this time that will interfere
with time or energy. Clear your schedule so you are able to attend in a timely manner.
FOOD & DRINK (at the studio) are allowed in the lobby areas only. Only water is allowed
past the lobby. If any cast member has any medical condition (hypoglycemia, etc.) that requires them to eat more often, the
staff should be notified. Any medical conditions must be indicated in writing.
EXPULSION: We reserve the right to expel any student or volunteer who does not adhere to HSDA/SB standards, is creating
a hindrance to the production, or has missed too many rehearsals. Depending upon circumstances, you may be expelled without
refund of fees.
AT THE THEATER: Cast members are not
allowed into the audience or intermission areas prior to or during performance or intermission. The audience is not allowed
to go into any cast member area during these same times. Only official cast and crew are allowed to be in those areas.
GET PICKED UP ON TIME! If anyone is picked up late from the studio or the theater
after rehearsals or performances, there will be a $2-per-minute charge, beginning at 10 minutes late, payable to the Sunrise
QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, CONCERNS? Ask your
group leader or the administrator in the studio lobby. If you need to speak with Mr. Hirschl, leave a note in the Black Box,
call and leave a message or e-mail (email@example.com). Do not disturb the teachers, choreographers or students during
lessons or rehearsals.
QUICK NOTES: Make up: If
you have skin that requires special make up, let us know in advance. We want everyone to look standardized: Make up details
will be posted soon! Dance shoes are to be worn inside the dance school & stage areas only. Wear dance clothing with a
cover-up when going to or from the theater or studio. Hair and clothing for rehearsals. Hair is to be in the proper fashion
and the appropriate dance attire (tights & leotards for the ladies, solid color tights/jazz pants/bicycle pants &
solid color shirt for gentlemen). Mark your belongings! Put your name on the inside of your shoes, tights, etc., where it
won’t be seen. Don’t bring anything of value to the studio or theater. We are not responsible for lost items.
What participants should bring to the theater: dance bag, towel, extra hair supplies, extra tights & shoes, bottle of
water, something quiet (like a book) to keep them busy. A beach towel would be preferred for you to sit on when backstage.
Be dressed in comfortable clothing (sweatpants and T-shirt) with tights underneath. Check your tights and shoes! Make sure
they are good condition. Know in advance if you have holes or loose elastics/ribbons in either. Have extra shoes and tights
with you at all times. The drop-off area is at the back stage door. Pick-up area is at the front rows of the audience area.
5 minutes after the curtain closes, it will open again, and the performers will be brought onto the stage area for pick up.

be signed in & out from the responsible backstage group leader by a parent/guardian. Be patient– we are doing this
