Green Room receptions and backstage tours are limited to the Junior Patron member only and not more than two adult chaperones at least 18yrs of age. Each Junior Patron and chaperone must show their passes to gain admittance into the Green Room. Out of courtesy to the dancers, backstage tours are limited to 30 minutes. Lines to meet the dancers will close 5 minutes prior to the end of each tour. Pictures with all dancers cannot be guaranteed due to time constraints.
