Arrival for Grand River

  • Performance Venue: Grand River Center, 500 Bell St, Dubuque, Iowa 52001
  • Lower level, Exhibition Hall 2
  • Please arrive in full costume, hair in bun and make up already applied.
  • If you have any costume changes, please keep in mind to keep it simple and please consider one costume or wearing your company/strap leotard underneath to assist in quick changes as there is not a separate changing facility.
  • DROP OFF FOR ALL STUDENTS: after you enter the performance area, please send your dancer behind the curtained-back stage area.
  • Everyone should arrive 30 minutes before the recital.  Pre/K students need to be taken by their parents to the restroom and be in their arrival room 25-30 minutes before we start. 
  • Friendly Reminders:  No flash photography! Please move only if necessary and only between numbers.  All electronics off! (Please remember the kiddos can see you sitting there-looking at your phones instead of watching them).  You may use video cameras/non-flash camera from your seat only.  Remember, you are barred from posting photos/videos of other children as you do not have their parents’ consent (Some kiddos have restrictions on what can be posted of them).  Please contact Miss Dee if you desire to post and would like her to do so (then you can share accordingly). Thank you.
  • Each child should also have a water bottle with their name on it.
  • No performers are allowed in the house (auditorium or watch area).
  • YOUNG CHILDREN MUST BE ON YOUR LAP OR SITTING. THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO RUN OR BE UP CREATING COMMOTION.
  • PLEASE DO NOT EXIT UNTIL THE SHOW IS OVER TO SEE YOUR CHILD.  The kiddos will not be ready for pick up until about 5 minutes after the show is finished.
