Let’s make some awesome memories and give back to our community by supporting Operation Breakthrough!

TOY DRIVE

We are having a Toy Drive to benefit Operation Breakthrough! Please bring an unwrapped toy to donate to Operation Breakthrough! We will have an area set up in the Studio Lobby for you to drop-off. They are in need, more than ever, of toys from infant through teens! This is something we are so proud to be a part of and to make a difference. Toy drop-off is available during our office hours (Mon-Thurs from 3:00-7:00 pm and Saturday from 9:00-11:00 am). We will not be accepting toys on the day of the performance so we can limit contact. Please drop them off at JPDC before December 13th!

 

ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN PROCESS

Each class will have a designated check-in time. Dancers or families will not be able to enter the building early. Dancers will need to arrive completely ready, and if they are in multiple dances where they change shoes, please have the shoes in a clearly labeled zip lock baggie. When you arrive at the theatre entrance, the door will be opened by a JPDC staff member where all attendees and dancers will get hand sanitizer and their temperature is taken, any temperatures that are measured as 100.4 or higher will be asked to not attend. Your dancer will go straight backstage with their class and JPDC teacher, and all attendees will enter the theatre, please have your ticket ready at this time! 

After dancers are dropped off, parents and other attendees will enter the theatre entrance, given a disinfectant wipe to wipe your seat before and after the show, give your ticket and find a seat. We will be limiting the number of people in the theatre, so when we hit capacity, we will close the door for that performance, and then switch groups for the same group to perform again. If you have another routine, your dancer will remain on stage and parents will remain in their seats until their dancer is completely done with all routines they are in. 

 

LEAVING/CHECKING OUT PROCESS

After the show ends, parents will be dismissed row by and row, you will be responsible for wiping off your seat back and armrests with the wipe provided. We ask that one parent comes to get their child from the stage and the rest of the adults go immediately outside the building - no loitering in the lobby. If you have another routine, your dancer will remain on stage and parents will remain in their seats until their dancer is completely done with all routines they are in. 

POLICIES AND PROCEDURES FOR THE WHITE THEATRE 

Please read and review the policies and procedures for our JPDC dancers and families! These are venue guidelines and will be strictly enforced for the safety of our dancers and families. All attendees and dancers will be REQUIRED to wear a mask the entire time, including performances. Temperatures of all attendees and dancers will be taken at the entrance, before dancers go backstage and before attendees go to the theatre. Inside the theatre, we have every other row roped off, and there need to be 2 empty seats between each household in the audience. All seats are first come first serve, attendees will not be allowed in the theatre until the seats are properly sanitized from the performance before, please be patient as we clean and ensure the safety of all our families. The White Theatre at the Jewish Community Center does ask that you use the restroom before entering the building to reduce the amount of people gathering and that you do not bring any food or drinks in the theatre.
