Sold out Dance Festival concerts will be on closed-circuit TV on location. Parents will be ushered into the auditorium to see their dancer's school perform live and will be ushered back to the closed-circuit TV broadcast afterwards. This is due to fire code regulations for auditorium capacity. There is no charge for this. ALL PARENTS WILL SEE THEIR DANCER(S) PERFORM LIVE.

Attendees purchase tickets and later find members of their party cannot attend, so please ask at your dancer's school to see if any extra tickets are available.

Attendees with tickets not being used are asked to bring them to the Dance Festival and check in at the Box Office table in the lobby. Everyone needing tickets is also asked to check in at the Box Office table. Festival staff will be there to match up extra tickets with attendees needing tickets. In most cases, we are able to get auditorium seats for those that want them.
