Before coming to class:
Wear clothing you can bend and move around in and that covers you securely.
Comfortable shoes you can move around in are also recommended.
Avoid heavy colognes and perfumes.
Respect the actors on stage by watching silently and applauding loudly
You are invited to perform “clean” and avoid cursing and vulgarity. It’s a fun challenge!
No hitting, jumping on, or kissing anyone you don’t already have a hitting, jumping, kissing, agreement with.
If you feel uncomfortable for any reason and need a timeout, just say “time out” and we will all cheer and take a short break.
