Our Holiday Benefit Concert is Saturday, Dec. 2nd at 11:00 am at the Hillcrest Performing Arts Center (north side of Sunnyside Rd. just East of Hitt Rd.). Doors will open at 10:30 am. Admission is a $4 donation and a canned or non-perishable food item per seat (dancers get in free). Proceeds will benefit the Idaho Falls Food Bank and other local families in need. Your generous donations are much appreciated! To help earn more for the cause, we are selling reserved seating tickets in advance for $8 per seat. Reserved and General Admission tickets will be sold at DTA during office hours beginning Tuesday, November 14th – Thursday, November 30th.
Listed below are the call times for all classes performing. Call times are the times the performers need to meet their class, with hair and make-up done, ready to perform. Please do not be late. We will not hold up the show to wait for late performers to arrive.
Call time 10:40 AM – Dancers will perform in Act 1 (beginning at 11:00 AM):
Toddler A, B, D, JBT A, B, C, D, 1, 2, 3, 4, Pre-Team A, B, C, D

All classes will meet in the hallway or classrooms near the backstage entrance (look for the signs on the walls for directions), with the exception of JBT A, B, C, D, and all Toddler classes. These classes will have assigned seating on the right side of the auditorium, close to the front. This is so one parent can sit with their child and we can quickly gather them to go backstage when it is their time to perform. Look for the sign with your child’s class listed so they will all be together. We will bring them back to those seats when they are finished performing. There is not enough room in these seats for the rest of the family so just one parent please.
After you drop off your dancer with their class, please be courteous as you find a seat in the auditorium. Please do not stand or walk in front of people while dances are being performed. Wait until in between dances and quickly be seated, and wait until the end of the Act to leave. For classes other than JBT A, B, C, D, and all Toddler classes, you will need to go to the hallway near the backstage entrance to pick up your child after they perform. We will need a parent or other teen/adult volunteer for every 6-7 children in a class to help us keep children quiet and together with their class backstage. Please let the receptionist at the front desk know if you have someone available to help.
If you will be video recording your child’s performance, please remain seated to do so or stand in the back or far side aisle, and be sure you are not blocking anyone else’s view. Thank you.
We are excited to see the dancers at their first performance on stage this season!
