Rehearsal Space Reservations Procedures and Policies

Choreographers, cast, and film/lighting crew are expected to follow ALL procedures and policies! This is one of the largest responsibilities, perhaps many of you have had. Honor it like Gold! We do not want to be the reason that the College gets shut down, PLEASE! Lot of people would be negatively affected.


Tom Gabowski, will be overseeing what happens in the studios. Failure to adhere to the policies will end a rehearsal and your ability to reserve in the future.


  1. Only rehearsals connected with “academic classes” will be booked.

  2. Masks are required!!!!

  3. No bare feet. Dance shoes are required, and street shoes must be left in the hallway.

  4. Keep all of your personal items together and away from others.

  5. Time limit for rehearsals is 45 minutes max. Each choreographer will have up to two (2) slots per week, max. (Additional rehearsals can be conducted on Zoom.) Rehearsal times are limited because of the order to properly clean the spaces. There will be a 30-minute air exchange time between any rehearsal scheduled. Weekend times may be limited, as well.

  6. Physical distancing of (10 feet apart) is required and guided by leaders of the rehearsal. 

  7. Everyone at a rehearsal must be accounted for. Attendance form must be submitted at the end of each rehearsal by the leaders of the rehearsal. No form? No more rehearsals will be scheduled or allowed by that individual.  

  8. Wash hands for 20 seconds before and after rehearsals! Use hand sanitizer before and after rehearsals – provided in the studio hallways! Leaders of the rehearsal, make it a routine amongst you and your cast

  9. Locker rooms are not available for use.  Dress for movement before you come to the PAC. You can use the lower level PAC Lobby restrooms - one person in the restroom at a time.

  10. Speak softly during rehearsals - shouting sprays spittle vapor. You might need to limit your sound playback volume or speak after you stop music, so you do not have to shout.
