Priority Seating We offer "priority seating" whereby the seating immediately in front of the competition floor is reserved for fans and family members of the performing team. Staff will provide direction on how to enter and exit priority seating. To make priority seating work most effectively, please abide by the following guidelines:
Wait until the team before yours has completed their performance before attempting to enter the priority seating area.
There is a short time period window between performances. Please move quickly to find a seat.
Out of courtesy to those seated behind you, and to ensure that the judge’s view of the performance is not hindered, please remain seated during the entire performance.
Exit priority seating immediately following your team’s performance.
