A2002 Safety Provisions for Dancers 
Adequate time (up to thirty (30) minutes) and space must be provided to permit all Dancers to warm-up (perform limbering exercises) prior to dancing. In no event shall any Dancer be asked or assigned to rehearse on unsafe floors, or concrete cement, stone, or similar surfaces unless the surface is covered in such a manner as to result in a resilient dancing surface except on “camera day” when the requirements of other production equipment make use of such non-resilient surfaces unavoidable. It is understood that the Producer may request that the Union waive the above provisions which address non-camera day rehearsal when it is deemed that such precautions are not necessary for the style of dancing to be performed, such as the minuet. All Dancers shall be given prior notice if dancing on oily or wet surfaces is required. If a Dancer is not notified, the Dancer may refuse to perform on such oily or wet surfaces unless the Dancer has, or is provided, appropriate footwear.
