1. Check out the souvenir table and buy a t-shirt to add to your dance warm-up collection.

2. Take the elevator to the top balcony in the lobby and case the joint for all your dance friends, then descend each set of stairs slowly a la Audrey Hepburn in ... what's that movie? ("Funny Face").

3. Take a breather on the outside balcony overlooking Louis Armstrong Park.

4. Graciously acknowledge your students and their parents.


1. Even think about using the ladies room unless you want to miss the entire second half of the program. (That's why you arrive early and take care of business beforehand).

2. Get blottoed and re-enter the theater doing your own version of the evening's choreography.

3. Wear black. Everyone but everyone else does, dahling. (Is this a performance or a funeral?)


1. Try to crash the millionaires' private lounge for drinks. (It's not actually crashing if you can dazzle someone into inviting you).

2. Case the theater for unused seats with a more advantageous view.

Stand up, turn around... see if you can get a rise out of the guys in the lighting booth..

Play "where's Waldo" trying to spot familiar faces in the audience... the dance community is pretty small, usually you can find someone you know.

Saunter out into the lobby saying "wasn't so & so __________!!!" and "Who was that _____________?"

If attending one of the nationally touring russian pick-up companies in a college theater, see if can browbeat someone over by the sound booth into letting you know which of the many castings listed in the program you're actually watching dance tonight.

Watch for little girls twirling in the aisles.

Look for a better seat.

Watch the little girls struggling to stay awake out for a big evening with mommy and/or daddy

Watch the teenagers trying to pretend they don't know their parents and stand in a perfect fifth

Just people watch -- it's one of my favorite places to do so.
