WHAT TO EXPECT:
Recital is such an exciting time of the year. We pride ourselves on making this show as seamless as possible. For our new families at DEA we encourage you to ask as many question as you need to so you can enjoy your first recital! During dress rehearsal and recital show nights , we only allow volunteers and stage crew backstage. Only our combo kids will be allowed to be picked up post performance if parents choose to leave. We will have plenty of volunteers in both dressing rooms to assist and monitor the children. Parents , you are welcome to pack your children snacks and water. The venue asks we avoid any juices or drinks with dye and gummy like snacks.
Backstage in our younger dressing room the kids will find activities such as coloring and puzzles. In the past we have had monitors for the kids to watch the show. Please know that the safety of your children is our number one priority and this is why we do not allow anyone backstage during these nights. If your child requires medical assistance or allergies please email the studio at email@example.com. We can not wait to share this night of inspiration with our families here at DEA.
