Etiquette Guidelines

For Attending Fine Arts Performances

The South Dakota High School Activities Association promotes observing the following audience etiquette guidelines while attending fine arts performances. These guidelines provide the basis for expected audience behavior at SDHSAA sponsored fine arts activities, including choral, band and orchestra concerts, region music contests and theatrical performances. These etiquette guidelines reflect expected behavior that assures courtesy to the performers and other audience members alike. Concentrate your attention fully on the performance. Do not talk during a performance. • We want you to talk about a performance, but please discuss it after the performance is over. • Respect those around you, including children, adults and performers. Applaud courteously at the end of the performance. • Applause between movements of a work is not appropriate. • Whistling and yelling are not appropriate at a performance.

• I f you feel that you observed a particularly exceptional performance, a standing ovation is an appropriate acknowledgment. Do not take photos during the performance (including videos). • This is a distraction to the performers as well as the other members of the audience. • Flash photos can temporarily impair the vision of the performers. Avoid making motions or noises which might distract other audience members or the performers. • Turn off cell devices and pagers. • Take your cap or hat off while in the auditorium. You are not at a sporting event! • Remember, a chair or theatre seat is to sit on, it is not a footstool. When entering or exiting the performance hall, do so only between performances. Thank You!
