I A.M. Dance Company held their third end of year dance recital in a 1400 Seating Capacity auditorium that included a 60ft wide and 40ft deep performance area. Previous years dancers performing in tap and clog routines were drowned out by the accompanying music being provided. Our task was to provide sound reinforcement and FOH mixing in support of the musical accompaniment and allow performers to be heard.
This was accomplished using Midas console and digital stage box package in combination with Crown PCC-160 boundary mics spaced strategically across the stage apron to pick up performers steps as needed. Monitor feeds were also supplied to allow dancers to have direct audio for their performance.
A talk back system was also deployed across the digital infrastructure to allow communication between the stage manager and DJ to coordinate performances. A second monitor feed was also provided in conjunction with video to a second multipurpose room being used as a dressing space to allow performers to see what was occurring in the main auditorium.
