DANCER TENT - Very Limited Access

  • The tent will be placed on a stone/shell driveway. When setting up your area you will want to bring a carpet remnant or area rug.
  • There will be lights and fans in the tent, but chances are it is going to be hot. You may want to bring a cooler of ice and towels to help cool off.
  • There is limited electric and the majority of the outlets will be used for the setup of the tent area.
  • We kindly ask that you be frugal in your personal area, as we have numerous students who need to use the space and occupancy standards to conform to.

PLEASE NOTE: If your child is in one number please have them arrive dressed for stage. Although the tent is primarily for students with multiple costume changes, one act students may utilize the tent after their number to change out of their costume if they wish, however we kindly ask you be mindful of the hectic pace of the area and try to be quick.
SAFETY AND HEALTH GUIDELINES
To ensure the safety of all dancers, no dancer will be permitted to leave directly from the stage. All dancers will report backstage after their numbers and the finale.

As we continue to be conscious of health concerns, the following has been implemented :
  • ALL DANCERS will need to have the following COVID-19 Acknowledgement on file for participation.
  • All dancers, Dance Dynamics Staff and anyone permitted tent access will be required to have their temperature taken upon arrival at the registration check in table.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the plaza.
  • The stage will be mopped with disinfectant between Act 1 and Act 2.
  • All Dance Dynamic employees and show team crew will have badges to help identify staff.
The tent will have very limited access to provide a distanced and relaxed atmosphere. With this in mind please note the following:
  • DD Staff will be assigned to the tent to help with costume issues and any quick changes.
  • Dancers ages 12 and up (Junior and Seniors), please utilize the DD Staff to help with any costume concerns. They will be in constant contact with the stage staff and can help navigate any problems that may arise. Unfortunately we have to deny tent access to parents of older students to help meet occupancy restrictions and reduce casual interaction.
  • Dancers ages 11 and under (Youth and Nuggets) - To meet occupancy restrictions and reduce casual interaction, we ask that the moms work together and create a schedule to take turns to be the Costume Helper for your group. If possible we would like no more than 1-2 moms per group in at a time. A tent badge pass will be needed for access. Please register with Tammy prior to Wednesday Walk Thru to ensure you will have a pass issued for Saturday.
  • To help keep occupancy down, dancers may have access to the tent while they continue to have numbers in the show. Upon their final number (not including finale) we request they join their families to watch the remainder of the show.

DANCERS AGES 11 AND UNDER, as this is an outside venue, for safety reasons please follow these guidelines:
  • Each young dancer will have a permission card that will be provided to their accompanying parent/guardian when they check in prior to the show. This card will be required to pick up your dancer throughout the night and after the finale. It will need to be turned in each time the child accompanies the parent into the audience or leaves for the evening.
  • Young dancers will not be permitted to leave the backstage area without being escorted by a parent to watch the show. The parent will need to hand in the permission card at the check in table and wait for a staff member to bring the student to the table.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
IF YOU BRING IT WITH YOU, take it home with you or throw it away properly. Please use the receptacles throughout the venue for trash and recyclables. Ensure your area in the tent and on the lawn is cleaned up before you leave.

  • Everyone needs to adhere to social distancing guidelines both inside the tent and out in the audience.
  • We remind all audience members and dancers to have a mask readily available to adhere to the NJ Executive Order: All individuals in New Jersey must now wear face masks while outside and unable to maintain a six-foot distance from other people.
  • Dancers are permitted to watch the show between numbers, but are requested to report back to the prep area at least 3 numbers before their next number. All dancers 11 and under will need to have their parent escort them to the check-in table first.
  • An announcement will be made when dancers from the audience will need to report to the prep area for the finale. All dancers 11 and under will need to have their parent escort them to the check-in table first.
  • Make a hair appointment early if you need help with the recital hair.
  • Come to stage with full performance makeup on and do touch ups as needed.

After the finale all dancers will report backstage.
  • Dancers who DO NOT have belongings in the tent:
  • Ages 12 and older will return to the front of the stage to meet their families.
  • Ages 11 and under, parents with the permission card report to the check in table to meet your child
  • Dancers who have a setup in the tent:
