In-Person Filming Days - What to Expect

May 15th and 16th

  • Please arrive at The Warehouse Theatre at or before your scheduled arrival time (reference the far-left column of the Showcase Filming Schedules).
  • A parent volunteer will take your child’s temperature and ask them the screening questions that all students are normally asked upon entry to
    Kinetics. Your child will be directed to their warm-up studio where they can store their belongings, change into costume, and prepare their bodies
    for performance.
  • Just as we practice at Kinetics, masks will be required inside of the theatre at all times.
  • Students should arrive dressed in their tights, nude leotards, leggings, or whatever required undergarments are specified for their class, but
    students must have a change of clothing that is not their Kinetics-provided costume. Students must turn in their costumes at the end of the
    filming day. More information on students’ required undergarments will be released via email soon!
  • After performing their dance and turning in their costumes, students will be dismissed to the parking lot. A parent volunteer will ensure students
    are met with a parent or guardian at pickup time. Please plan to meet your student at the door of the theatre when their filming time is
    complete. The filming duration has been specified in the Showcase Filming Schedules.
  • Students who are performing for several classes may bring a snack or meal and stick around the theatre between filming timeslots. There will be designated areas for students to wait between performances. We will direct students to eat in the parking lot just outside the building, weather permitting, and we will designate a parent volunteer to supervise them as they are eating.
  • Due to COVID-19 safety regulations, parents will not be permitted in the building unless they have signed up for a volunteer position.
  • Sign up to volunteer using this link!
Livestream and Online Filming Week - What to Expect

May 17th – May 23rd

  • Students who are performing their showcase dance over Zoom should make their best efforts to clear a space large and unobstructed enough to
    execute their choreography.
  • Livestream & Online students have been provided with a costume and should plan to wear their costume and any required undergarments or shoes on the weeks of Dress Rehearsal & Recording.
  • Please test your lighting, technology, and space parameters the week leading up to recording, to ensure the best possible recording of your performance!
Mask Requirement and Custom Mask Purchase

In an effort to streamline the appearance of dancers in the performance and minimize distractions, Kinetics is requiring that students wear a face mask that matches their skin-tone as closely as possible. Families may purchase these masks from any shop or seller of their choice, but Kinetics will be running a fundraiser with Jessica Woofter, a mother of one of our students here at KDT.

Jessica Woofter’s Etsy Shop, Ellicott City Masks, has provided over $1,900 to the Maryland Food Bank by selling masks and donating 100% of profits! Jessica is collaborating with Kinetics to provide face masks in a variety of skin-tone shades that can be purchased for just $5.00! We will be posting a board at the studio with samples of fabric in 13 shades. Once you have matched your student’s skin to the nearest-matching shade of fabric, please fill out a response in this Google Form to place your order.

Parent Volunteers Needed!

We need your help making this showcase run smoothly, before, during, and after our filming days. Please visit this link to sign up to volunteer.

Volunteer positions include seamstresses for costume alterations, greeters, backstage coordinators, stage hands, costume collectors, class parents,
and more! Most volunteer slots on filming days have been broken down into 3-hour windows. Please feel free to sign up for two consecutive slots
if you are feeling eager.

In addition to the posted volunteer positions, Kinetics is also seeking a parent volunteer with photography experience! We are hoping to collaborate
to document the Spring Showcase. Please email teresa@kineticsdance.org for more information.
