Show Times – Pick-up and Drop-off

Please stay in an orderly line, wait your turn and be patient When waiting to check-in and check-out your dancer. Our volunteers have to ensure the safety of our 188 dancers in the show. Yelling and complaining only makes it harder for the volunteers to do their job, slowing the whole process down. This is for the safety of your children, not your convenience.
