If you could look behind the curtain, you'd see a team of people putting on this show. Those men and women in black are the production team. They're giving us lights and sound, and you might see them run out and clear the stage between dances. The dancers are warming up. Musicians are practicing in the hallway.
You have a role to play too! If you do a good job of watching, you'll help our show look good! You say you're not quite sure what it takes to be a great audience member? Hey, a little rehearsal always helps. Here's a game that'll help you play your role.
Learning anything new starts with your head.
You'll need to give your eyes a workout to see everything that happens on stage. Did you keep your eyes on the dancers?

Go ahead and tap your foot - who can resist? Please don't kick the seat in front of you, though. Did you remember to keep your legs out of the aisle? When you get home, try moving your feet like one of the dancers.
Every performer wants to know that you enjoyed the show. Help them out by clapping after the performance.
What about a big smile? That makes every dancer feel good. Here's a big round of applause from us.
