Expectations for In-Person Performers

  • Students will be required to arrive in costume 30-60 minutes prior to showcase for a 5 minute spacing rehearsal on the outdoor stage.
  • After the spacing rehearsal, students will be escorted to a designated holding room inside the Arts Center. Depending on current public safety guidelines, please note that larger holding rooms may be shared between two class groups. 
  • Classes will be escorted from their holding room to perform on the outdoor stage at the appropriate time, then brought back to the holding room. 
  • Upon the end of the performance, students will rejoin their families and are requested to leave promptly. 
  • Length of each showcase is 30-60 minutes. 

Expectations for Virtual Performers

  • Depending on the comfort level, students attending class virtually are permitted to change their participation to in-person. Deadline to modify participation is April 1. Please contact Claire Buss | claire@lawrenceartscenter.org for further information. 
  • Virtual Students will learn the same choreography as the in-person students. 
  • Virtual Students will be giving option of performing by:

 1) Submitting a video recording of their performance in a location of their choosing for a free video compilation of all virtual performers. Music will be provided in advance. Deadline for video recording is TBD.  

OR

2) In-Person on the 940 New Hampshire Street Stage along with other in-person participates. This option requires the virtual students to attend their final class in-person the week of May 7-13. To allow for as much space as possible, classes with virtual participants joining on the final day will be held inside on the Arts Center Mainstage. This final rehearsal is closed to only students.
