Frequently Asked Questions

  • What can I do to sit with my friends?
    Mail or hand-deliver all your ticket order forms and payments in the same envelope.
  • My husband needs an aisle seat! What do I do?
    Make a note in the space provided on the order form if an aisle seat is a necessity. It may mean you sit further back but, if a special seating arrangement is important to you, let us know! We will try to accommodate    requests.
  • When will I get my tickets?
    Parents and students (Gr. 6+ with parent’s permission) can pick up tickets at the Lexington studio beginning March 3rd.
  • Will tickets be sold on the day of the show?
    Yes, if there are still seats available. Where is the best place to sit? All the seats are good in this auditorium. There is a balcony for individuals who prefer watching from above.
  • I’m going to volunteer at a different recital than the one my child is performing in, how do I note that on my form so I can redeem the free ticket?
    Just make a note of that next to the ticket payment section. In order for this to go through you must confirm with Kristin Cobb (office@thedanceinn.com) that you are in fact registered to work a different show.
  • What about handicapped seating?
    Handicapped seating is available throughout the auditorium, in the front side rows, the back corners and the center of the balcony. In addition, we seat guests with visual disabilities in the front row. In order to accommodate your requests, we MUST receive your ticket order by the first day and we REQUEST THAT YOU HAND DELIVER IT TO OUR OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR AND INDICATE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE ENVELOPE THAT YOU NEED A HANDICAPPED SEAT.

Please note the following policies to avoid a delay in processing your ticket order:

  • All balances must be paid in full prior to issuing tickets. Tickets cannot be reserved without full payment. Tickets cost $18 each.
