Liability form and the original should come with the coach. Also, solos will be running on time… please arrive for
the beginning of your timeslot. For example, if you are in the 7:30 - 7:50 timeslot….please be standing in the
warmup hallway at 7:30 ready to go.
Bus Parking- Please note all busses need to park by Brandt Quirk Park. Here is a map of where they need to
park. There is a parent volunteer shuttling the drivers back to WHS. There will be a “Bus Driver’s Lounge”. Please
have them ask where that is so they can enjoy the amenities.
Mezzanine Time is located upstairs on the second floor. Please report to your assigned mezzanine practice time.
This will allow the competition to run smoothly and on time. This is the time that you must report to the
mezzanine (2nd floor practice gym). You will have 8-9 minutes from the time listed to practice with your music and
run through your routine. The competition will hopefully be running smoothly right on time. If it is, and you come
4 minutes late for your mezzanine time… please know that you will only get 4-5 minutes to practice. After you
have had your mezzanine time, you will be escorted down the opposite staircase and into the gym where you will
be checked for fingernail violations, and jewelry violations. Then you will “on deck” or “in the hole”. Please make
sure your dancers have their nails cut and their jewelry, earrings, necklaces, rings, belly button rings, and tongue
rings removed before entering the gym. Also be sure that they don’t have hair ties on their wrists as that is also
considered a bracelet. It is very important for us to stay on time. As we see your time as being very valuable and
we will do our best to be prompt. There will be signs pointing you to the staircase to the mezzanine (it is the one
by the Girls Gym Locker Room). There will be parents upstairs organizing the practice gym use. Please let them
know if you are new to the process so they can clarify for you.
Concessions will be available throughout the day. Please plan to eat brunch/lunch at the competition! No carry ins
Admission for spectators: Adults $5, Students $3, children under 5 are free.

We value your input and always try to improve for the following year.

need help. All classrooms/locker rooms are off limits to parents, boyfriends, friends, etc. Please let your parents
know that they won't be allowed down the hallways and will be stopped. This is for the safety of the dancers and
their belongings. Remember that all parent volunteers will have to pay to get in. If you want to have a few parent
volunteers to help you get your girls ready a coach must request them. We won’t be giving them to parents who
Also, as you know many of the locker rooms have multiple teams and some of the classrooms as well. Please
remind your dancers not to leave money in their bags. Instead, they should leave their money with their parents or
with the coach. We don’t want any valuables to be stolen either…so remind them to leave their heirloom jewelry
at home too.
ACT testing will be taking place on the second floor of WHS. Please remember not to go upstairs for any reason.
There will be signs leading you up the only staircase we need you to use to get to the mezzanine (practice gym). If
