Requirements for Performance

Dance Space

An adequate-sized, clean dance space on a surface that is appropriate for dancing in bare feet and is free from objects that may cause harm to the dancers. A clear path to the dance space is helpful.

Sound System

A powerful sound system that is loud enough to cover all background noise during the performance (to be heard clearly by the dancers), and someone to operate it (press play and let Seraka do what they do best).

Private Room

A secure, private change room with a large mirror where the dancers can prepare, change costumes, rest before and after the performance (or between sets), and store their belongings during the performance.  A public washroom is not acceptable.

Safety

Zero harassment (sexual or other) will be accepted.

Deposit

Non-refundable 50% deposit is required to hold your booking. Balances can be paid at the time of the event, before the performance begins, or by invoice if arranged in advance.

Signed Contract

This outlines your expectations, Seraka’s expectations, and the terms for the booking, including holding your date and time.
