STAY TUNED FOR NEW PROCEDURES REGARDING THEATRE ACCESS.
NEW – RAC’N ROLL POLICY: The Sanderson Centre has newly implemented a policy banning Rac’n Rolls from the facility. The renovations made to the Sanderson Centre change rooms now provide 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. Purpose Dance Competition Inc. is advising attendees to cooperate with the new policy to avoid inconvenience when arriving at the event.
PROPS: Teachers, please be prepared to load props in and out daily. Stage door access will be provided for one teacher representative ONLY, 1 hour prior to show times for prop arrival. Please note that we cannot guarantee that you will be able to store ANY props over night at the theatre. There is no additional storage space provided, and for the safety of the performers and all event attendees, we cannot have props sitting in the backstage area.
Please note that if you are traveling with a large trailer, the Sanderson Centre must be advised in advance to assist with parking permits. Without advanced notice we can not guarantee a parking space will be permitted by the city.
Teachers, please also acknowledge that due to new COVID-19 procedures and venue policies, large props and/or set pieces may not be permitted. We will continue to provide information specific to each city surrounding prop protocols however, at this time we advise against the use of large props and set pieces until further notice.
