Child Pick-Up Policy

Dancers 5th Grade or Younger

To ensure the safety of all young dancers, parents must pick up their child(ren) at the studio’s door or other designated area at the end of each scheduled rehearsal or event.

Late Pick-Up

If you will be late, please call the front desk (785.843.2787). A late fee will be charged for any students remaining in the building more than 10 minutes after the end of class.


Parents and caregivers are expected to volunteer throughout the run of the show. For the safety of our youth cast, all volunteers are required to complete a background check.

Parent volunteers (PV) are an essential part of any production — a solid and robust PV community helps ensure all details of the production come together smoothly, safely and professionally. Please carefully read the different opportunities to determine where you’d like to help.

As we determine when and where volunteers are needed, we will reach out to you.

Costume Team | Work with the Costume Designer to construct, tailor, mend or organize costumes.

Hair & Makeup Team | Work with the Hair and Makeup Consultant to style hair and apply performer makeup.

Security & Room Monitor Team | Safety and communication are key to the production. Security and room monitors create a safe environment for our cast.

  • During Tech Week, Security and Room Monitors work with the Production Coordinator to ensure performers and their costumes are checked in and out.
  • Room Monitors will ensure performers are ready for their call in complete costume.
  • Security helps deescalate security issues and notifies the Production Coordinator of any emergencies.

All volunteers must complete the Volunteer Sign-Up Form by February 1. (If you have completed this previously, you do not need to fill it out again.)
