Please remind your guests that NO cameras are allowed inside the auditorium. The taking of videos or photographs on cell phones inside the auditorium is strictly prohibited at the recital.  Our top priority is the safety of our dancers.  Videos and pictures may be taken during dress rehearsal.  A professional video of the recital will be available for purchase – order forms will be available when purchasing tickets and at the show.

*The security staff and/or auditorium manager will be asking anyone entering with a camera to return it to their car.  If a camera is used in the auditorium, security staff will remove the camera and, if necessary, escort the person out of the high school.


A successful show requires a large amount of dedication and hard work.  While the Academy provides all the wonderful extras, it is the ADA staff and parents that make the show possible.  These individuals volunteer their time at show preparation, dress rehearsals, and performances to produce a quality show for your dancers, their families, and guests.

"ADA Dad Crew" is a great way for Dads to get involved with their daughters!  These devoted dads offer their time to help with the set-up and tear-down of the show, work as stage crew, or help with tickets or security at the auditorium doors.  Please contact the office if you’d like to be involved.

ADA Moms, we need your help too! 

Parent supervision in the dressing rooms and other student areas is vital for a successful show.

We also need volunteers to help with flowers in the lobby, tickets, etc.   If your dancer has a dance in both shows, it would be appreciated if you could volunteer to help for one show and you can watch your child’s dance from backstage or the back of the auditorium.  (No ticket purchase required for volunteers).
