Reminders:

  • Hydrate/bring water.
  • Wear closed-toe shoes (e.g., tennies) and clothing you can move/dance in!
  • No gum chewing while dancing (it would be awful if anyone choked).

DAY OF STUFF YOU WANT TO KNOW

Wardrobe for those dancing:

  • #ShakeIt T-shirt and any color knee-length or longer pants OK (e.g., blue jeans, yoga pants) as long as they cover and you can move in them. Be you. Be comfortable. (Feel free to YOU-niquely shred shirts--leaving logos intact, please!)
  • Rubber sole, non-marking shoes only (e.g., tennis shoes). Or you may not be allowed on court. (Court access is subject to Staples/Clippers approval!)
  • No identifiable logos or messages on clothes/accessories or you may need to turn them inside out. (If you can recognize the logo or word from across a regular sized room, it could be too big to be filmed.)

Valuables:

  • Go light! (I use these opportunities to bring fanny packs back in style!). We will likely leave our belongings in the backstage tunnels. No one actively supervises our things and no lockers are provided. Keep it simple. Leave the precious stuff at home; bring only what you need.

Staples Center Parking:

  • Make sure you are OK to be parked in whatever lot you parked in until after the game and pay accordingly. ASK! Plan accordingly so you don't miss check-in/are not late.
  • Map of parking
  • Public transportation
