Hey Battle Studios!

2.  PARKING:  Parking on the University of Utah campus is mostly free and open on Saturdays but read signs carefully.  There is a designated parking garage near Kingsbury Hall indicated on the parking map below.  There will be one reserved parking spot for each Studio Director on President’s Circle right in front of the theatre that day.

3.  TICKETS:  Just a reminder that all spectators will have to buy a ticket to The Battle.  But it will be one GREAT SHOW so invite friends and family and fellow dancers to come watch some of the best dancing in the state!  Tickets are $15 each at the Kingsbury Hall box office (outside the building on the right of the main doors).

4.  VIDEOGRAPHY:  Our official Battle Photographer, Corey with Manshak Films, will be filming throughout the day. Studios who would like him to film their routines, he will give you and your parents and dancers free downloadable access to every routine from your studio, including Final Battle performances, as well as our Battle highlight video for just $6 per registered dancer.
