Rules, Guidelines and Etiquette 

for filming day:

  • As you know- with Covid restrictions, this year is a bit different. Our performance is not a live performance, but a filming day! And yet all rules, guidelines and etiquette for our dancers still apply: With that in mind, please remember to be on time! We have a strict filming schedule and WE WILL NOT WAIT FOR YOU. Due to the rental space we must be running on time. Please arrive READY TO GO, 15 minutes before your scheduled time slot.
  • Dancers age 10+ should be dropped off at Morgan Park Academy doors, no parent accompaniment needed. We will have our entire staff of instructors as well as volunteer assistants ready to help. 
  • Dancers under age 10 (age 2-9), may have ONE PARENT assist and help with getting ready & dressed on filming day. We are strictly limiting who may enter the building. No extra family members, one parent or designated helper only, & no dancer’s siblings- unless they are fellow Dance Gallery students. 
  • All costume, make up, hair, accessories, etc. must be done at home, prior to bringing your dancer to the theatre. Please follow the class instructions your teacher has given for each class. Ask before if you are unsure. We are very strict on neatness of hair for performances!
  • No jewelry is allowed on stage
  • Please be prepared with your own supply of bobby pins, hair spray, combs, safety pins, brushes, makeup, extra tights, etc. 
  • PLEASE CLEARLY LABEL YOUR DANCER’S NAME ON ALL COSTUMES, SHOES, BAGS, ETC. Name should be clearly marked on everything. This will prevent any confusion.
  • Only water and a light healthy snack are allowed & always clean up after yourselves. Be respectful of the space we are utilizing.
  • No shimmery tights, this material catches the light and enlarges the structure of the leg.
  • In the professional dance world, no underwear is worn under the costume. It creates bulges and unsightly lines. No underwear. 
  • NO PARENTS are allowed in the actual theatre while filming. You may NOT WATCH. You must wait in the lobby. This will be strongly enforced. 
  • Parents (of younger dancers) are only allowed in the dressing room areas to assist with getting ready. 
  • MASKS must be worn in lobby, dressing room, and backstage. When it is your dancer’s turn to film they may be taken off. Only then. Please bring a zip-lock bag with your child’s name clearly marked to hold the mask. The instructors will be helping assist with this. While at Morgan Park Academy, Please limit your contact with others, masks must be worn by all and maintain social distancing.  
  • The editing of our filmed performance will take at least 4 weeks. You will be able to purchase the link and view. We will keep our website updated with info about the link and the show as well. You may go to:  www.dancegallerychicago.com. We ask that there is one purchase per household. No sharing of link will be permitted.  
  • Be patient, be on time, be kind, be quiet backstage, listen to direction. Act like respectful young ladies and gentlemen. Follow all rules, focus on yourself and dance! Smile! Have Fun! Dance, Dance Dance!!!

 

In closing, to my parents I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your support throughout the year.

“Here’s to a Great Show!”
