Please ask your studio director to find out when he or she wants you to arrive at the competition. Because we tend to run early, we ask that all dancers be ready to dance at least 1 hour prior to their scheduled time.

Anyone in the audience hoping to watch a particular dancer should be there one hour ahead of time as well.

Dancers need to check in with our backstage director at least 5 routines prior to their scheduled routine.
