Notes and reminders for Breakout – so everything runs smooth!

Please note these procedures for registration & timed rehearsals on stage:
·       Each school will have a specific time for registration, teachers must arrive with their students
·       To make the registration faster have students stand in alpha order (use list you sent in).
·       Once registered, students must wear their wristbands for dancer I.D. & access to change rooms. (right arm)
·       Due to strict time constraints, only classes will rehearse on stage. 
Teams can rehearse in the cafeteria of Pacific Academy.
·       Teachers will hand in their music on flash drive to the music technician (Will) on 2nd floor.
·       When your group is called to the stage, please be prepared. Classes with be given 3 minutes to rehearse their formations without music. The sound tech will test your music to make sure it is correct and in working order. Have a back-up C.D. with all your songs just in case.
·       After your practise, students will move to the cafeteria until 11:30 when seating begins. Student seating will be posted in the cafeteria and in the theatre.  Your teacher will also have a copy.
·       We prefer students not leave the building, but if you do, you will be searched again on re-entry.
·       All school rules apply. If needed, you will be asked to leave by our school security team.
·       Dancers only with coaches and sponsors in the cafeteria.  No outside friends or family.
·       All cafeteria doors must be kept closed. 
·       Please place garbage in cans provided.
·       Please put on your make-up before arriving or in the change rooms provided.
·       Keep all valuables with you at all times.  If it is valuable, leave it at home. 
We cannot be responsible for lost items.
·       Please bring a snack/lunch as the concession is limited and there is nothing near by.
·       Please remind your students that all dancers involved are amateur with many performing at a competition for their very first time.  Let’s all be respectful and encourage one another.  The spirit of the show is to showcase our teams and what we are learning in our classrooms and to have fun.   Please make sure your students know it is not important whether we win or lose but rather that we put on a great show!

See you all soon!
