Department Complimentary Ticket Policy for 2008-2009
Everyone gets 1 COMP ticket for the performance run (not one for each night). This applies to all choreographers and dancers, faculty, grad and undergrad. Choreographers do not get more comp tickets. Dance Minors get 1 COMP ticket for the student Winter and Spring Concerts only.

Make sure to show-up early on the night you want to attend and the box office assistants will check off your name. Everyone will have to present their Buck ID and then be checked off the list (that last part is new, due to the university audit in 2007).

There are no reservations. All tickets are sold at the door. Columbus State Vouchers for student performances will be accepted. I recommend having your guests arrive as close to when the box office opens in order to avoid possible ticket sell-out. The box office table opens approximately 40 minutes before the start of the performance. Dept ticket prices are: $10 general admission, $5 students, senior citizens, and anyone with a Buck ID.

For the Dance on Camera series, since each screening contains different showings, everyone getting this email will get one comp for each screening.

Also, it is understood that sometimes faculty need to see student performances more than once, if they are on a student’s project committee. Those faculty names will just be checked off more than once on the Comp List, as needed, for student concerts.
