Videos & Photography

Is strictly prohibited during the recital. This paragraph was taken from a dance teacher site online and this is very important information. We have a professional videographer shooting the whole show so there is no need for cell phones out during our show.

Your phone lights up the dark auditorium like the sun and we will have bouncers to enforce this rule.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Wanna lose faith in humanity really fast? Spend the day respectfully asking adults to stop recording during a recital.

Me: sir please stop recording during the show

Him(holding up his iPhone, screen open, in video mode): I’m not recording.

Me: Sir, I have an iPhone too. I know how they work. That time counter up top indicates you are in fact recording. There is no need to lie to me. Can you please be an adult and follow the rules?

I walk away with him still in view and he starts recording again. I return to his seat.

Me: Sir, I can still see you. Please stop recording.

Him: no

Me: I block his view and as nicely again

Him: keeps recording and insists he is not recording.

Me: 😑

Him: (stops recording again)

I walk away. He starts a third time.

Me(much louder in a deeper voice now): Sir, please stop recording.

Him: REALLY!?!?

Me: Yes. Really. I wouldn’t have asked you 3 times if I was kidding.

Him: 🤬

This is why your children don’t listen to you. Because you don’t listen to other adults yourself. Stop being so rude and inconsiderate.

To every cell phone user in the audience! Besides the fact we made an announcement not to film or take photos your behavior is distracting to other audience members who paid for their ticket too. You’re not special. You are recording (and sometimes posting on social media) other families children and that is not O. K. You are recording choreographers intellectual property without their permission. And; your actions (texting, playing toonblast, recording, emailing or otherwise) is a distraction to the performers who worked hard for the last 10 months. Plus, opening your phone in a dark theater is like turning on the sun! Your small screen is much much brighter than you think. This show has lighting. Your small screen is ruining the light show! Just stop!!! There are more reasons I can list but isn’t asking respectfully enough of a reason?

PS Even when you make believe you aren’t recording by holding your phone low and in front of your chest you are just as easy to see as someone holding there phone out in front of them 🤷🏽‍♂️

The humans are becoming hard and hard to live with 😳

SHARE THIS POST! THIS IS THE TYPE OF POST WE NEED TO MAKE VIRAL….

My response was…

Patty Flowerday I will add to this post, there are pedophiles out there everywhere and our show is open to the public. So do you want these kind of people taking photos and video graphing your children so they can air brush and edit photos to their liking? I think our kids safety is the best reason to prohibit this.

There are video order forms at the desk. I have also emailed them. If you pre order it’s cheaper. Get the video of the show, your dancers will watch it for years to come!

Picture Day is Friday June 14th at Risen Christ 1000 Moseley Rd. You will pre order your photos online. Please arrive promptly and call ahead if you are running late. Online orders are due by the 10th!
