Show Dismissal

The safety of our dancers is our sole priority during dismissal, therefore, your patience, kindness, and understanding while we ensure every child makes it to their parent is needed and appreciated. 

PARENT PICK-UP WRISTBANDS

  • Parent pick-up wristbands will be distributed at rehearsal upon check-in. Ensure that the parent who is responsible for picking-up your dancer at the backstage door on recital day has possession of the wristband. 

DIMISSAL PROCEDURE

  • Parents who have a pick-up wristband will wait in line by the backstage door for their dancer to be called after their show concludes. It is vital that only ONE parent waits in line so that we can ensure a smooth dismissal process. Please be patient as this is a slower process to ensure the safety of our dancers. 

  • Signage will indicate the location of the backstage door. 

  • Dancers will exit with all of their belongings. 

  • Move Dance Academy is not responsible for any lost or stolen items left behind. 

MINI DISMISSAL & THEATRE ENTRY 

  • Mini parents should save a seat for their performing dancer upon entry. 

  • Minis will be DISMISSED AT INTERMISSION and are highly encouraged to return to the theatre to watch the rest of the show. 

    • Parents who have a pick-up wristband will wait in line by the backstage door for their dancer to be called after their show concludes. It is vital that only ONE parent waits in line so that we can ensure a smooth dismissal process.

    • Please DO NOT BE LATE as we need this process to conclude at the designated time to not interrupt the flow of the show. 

  • Practice good theatre etiquette and consideration for others by waiting until in between routines to enter and exit the theatre. Please be mindful that if you are standing during a performance you may be blocking a parent from seeing their dancer on stage. 

    • Visit the theatre etiquette page for more details. ​
