Going out to a show?
Did you know you are in an audience almost everywhere you go? We all need refreshers about audience etiquette, especially when you're going somewhere you've never been. For example, did you know it is impolite to begin clapping before the conductor's hands drop to his or her sides? All audiences are different. Below is a rubric to use with your kids when you are going somewhere new or different to help them understand what kind of behavior will be acceptable. I hope you find it useful!
