Observer Bands

We love parents at ADE and are happy to offer
the opportunity for you to observe our classes! 

Observer bands can be purchased for the full event. We do not offer single day options at this time. Though we would love to allow everyone in class, we must take into account the dancers' safety by allotting them proper space in the classroom. For this reason, we must limit the number of observer bands sold.

Observer Wristband Policy: 
Pre-registration is strongly suggested as observer bands may sell out. If still available, they will be sold at the door starting on at early check-in. All observer bands are non-refundable and may not be transferred. ADE is not responsible for lost or stolen bands. You must be accompanying a dancer to observe (children five and under may observe free of charge). Noise level and activity should be kept to a minimum out of consideration for the faculty and dancers. No cell phones, talking, videotaping or note-taking permitted. ADE reserves the right to remove anyone who is disrupting the workshop or not following security directions. Please note: You do not need an observer band to enter ADE Competition, ADE Showcase or The Scholarship Ceremony. This band allows entrance into all ADE level classes.
