All classes will perform at the Jack Guidone Theater at Joy of Motion | Friendship Heights. Each Winter/Spring class for Grades 1-12 will perform once on Sunday.

Call Time
Dancers should arrive 30 minutes prior to the start time of their show. Dancers should use the rear entrance (enter the alley from Ignomar Street) to the studio and gather in Studio C. (We’ll have folks on hand to help.) We recommend using public transit (or bikes or feet) since parking may be limited. Dancers should arrive already in costume!

Tickets & Seating
Each dancer has three FREE tickets for each show in which they appear. You are welcome to bring more than three people and we will seat everyone for whom we have space. We just cannot guarantee extra seats in advance.

Once the shows begin, we will NOT have late seating or early dismissal, as it is distracting for the dancers. You are welcome to take photos or video as long as you absolutely, positively do not use a flash. (We also request that you not hold up a tablet and block the view of those seated behind you!)
