Dancer Check-In and Out Procedures
If your child is dancing in more than one routine, please make sure they arrive in their first performance costume and have all the necessary costumes and shoes, clearly labelled along with them.
When you arrive at the Rose Theatre on rehearsal day, please report to the check-in counter and sign your dancer(s) in. Parents/guardians are NOT able to watch the rehearsal. When your child is finished rehearsing all of their routines and they have had their group picture(s) taken, they may leave the theatre.
On the actual recital performance days, parents are asked to bring their dancer(s) to the theatre one hour before their specific showtime. Dancers should arrive in their first costume, with hair and make-up already done. Proceed to the check-in counter and sign your dancer(s) in. Your child will be available for pick-up after they have performed their last routine or you may choose to leave them until the end of the show. Supervision will be provided in the holding room by parent volunteers, as well as other staff members.
No child will be allowed to roam the facility without parental supervision.
During the recital, children requiring help with costume changes will be helped by adult staff or volunteers. Parents wishing to help their own child may do so by meeting them in their assigned dressing room.
Parents, please note, in the interest of safety, the person picking up your child(ren) may be asked to provide identification. No recreational dancer will be allowed to leave the holding room without a parent/guardian signing them out. This procedure has been put in place to ensure your child(ren)’s safety. It may get hectic when all parents are trying to sign in and sign out their children in all at once, but with a little patience from everyone, we will be able to ensure that all children are accounted for.
If you have purchased a ticket for your dancer, please go the holding room after your child’s last number, sign them out and then they may watch the rest of the performances with you. A television screen/monitor will be set up for those dancers remaining in the holding room so they can watch the other performances while waiting to be picked up.
