What you should know when you get there…

THEATRE ACCESS & PARKING: Venue doors will open 1 hour prior to showtime each morning. House/theatre doors open 15 minutes prior to show time. PAID on-site parking is available.

PROPS: We cannot guarantee that storage space will be provided for props. Please be prepared to load props in and out as needed. Backstage access will be provided 1 hour prior to show times for prop arrival.

TRAILER PARKING: Please note that trailer parking is not permitted in the loading dock area. A permit is required from the city in order to park your trailer in the loading dock vicinity on the road. Should you require a permit, you are required to contact Parking Enforcement directly.

MUSIC: Music can be submitted directly through your Computition account.

  • STUDIO OWNERS/DIRECTORS ONLY: Please sign-in to your Computition dashboard where you will see the option to “Upload Music Files”.
  • Accepted Music Formats: .wav, .mp3, .m4a, or .mp4
  • Non Compatible Media Formats: .mov and .qt (QuickTime music files)

BACK UP MUSIC: We ask that all Studio Owners/Directors have backup copies on hand at the event.

  • A USB, iPod, iPad, laptop or cellphone can be used for backup music ONLY.
  • Adapters (if needed) must be provided by Studio Owners/Directors and/or teachers as we cannot guarantee compatibility from device to device.

NOTE: Teachers are responsible to play backup music. We ask that teachers are present at the music table to give any special cues. We cannot guarantee that a pitch control change can be precisely made. It is best to pre-pitch all music to avoid technical issues.

RAC N ROLL POLICY: The Sanderson Centre has implemented a policy banning Rac N Rolls from the facility. The Sanderson Centre change rooms are equipped with hanging shelves/racks for dancers to properly store their costumes. The policy was put into place to allow more changing space for dancers and to clear entrances and exits from obstructions. The policy is NOT that of Purpose Dance Competition Inc. We are advising attendees to cooperate with the policy to avoid any inconvenience when arriving at the event.


  • Purpose Dance Directors recommend that dancers arrive dressed and ready in costume, with hair and makeup done, for their first performance. Arriving ready will allow for more usable space in the change rooms.
  • Purpose Dance Directors recommend that parents and/or guardians of dancers 12 years of age or older refrain from being in the change rooms unless absolutely necessary.

PROGRAMS: Show programs will be available for purchase at the merchandise booth in the main lobby. Electronic programs will not be available.

LIVE STREAMING: All performances and awards ceremonies will be live streamed. Our live stream can be accessed via the Purpose Dance website homepage.
