Safety and Health
Drink Water and Lots of it!
Fact: If you are thirsty you are dehydrated. Drinking plenty of water throughout the weekend is vital to your health and safety. Drink water at regular intervals, especially in hot weather but even if it’s not, and be sure to stay hydrated on the days leading up to the show. While you’re here, fill up on H20 at any of our free hydration stations, or purchase water at various concession stands around the venue. Water is the #1 key to good health at DFT.
POWER YOUR BODY WITH HEALTHY FOOD!
We are giving away 1,000’s of free bananas to the DFT campers this year. We want to promote a healthy diet while at Dancefestopia. Pack healthy food and select better choices at least once a day from our food vendors. Start each day off with a healthy full breakfast. Eating healthy is the #2 key to good health at DFT.
It’s easy to get separated at DFT. Know where your friends are, set up meeting points, and stick together. Two or three brains are better than one! If you think a new or old friend needs help, ask our friendly staff to assist, and always leave the show with everyone in your crew.
Dancefestopia features a first aid booth and a team of medical practitioners ready to care for your every need—free of charge 24 hours a day! If you’re lightheaded or nauseated or have too many blisters from dancing the night away, please visit our friendly medical staff, or ask a Borda Productions team member for assistance.
Roaming Medical Teams
If you happen to see Health & Safety officers roaming through the venue, give them a high-five! These heroic people stay on their feet for the entirety of Dancefestopia to keep a watchful, caring eye on you! And if either you or a friend has a medical concern, flag one of those friendly folks down. They’re there to help fam, there to help.
Keep a Watchful Eye Out
If you suspect that someone is suffering from a medical issue or potential drug overdose, seek immediate attention at the first aid booth, or find a Ground Control team member. You’ll recognize them by their medical shirts, fanny packs and light sabers.
NOTIFY MEDICAL OR SECURITY IF YOU SEE THESE SIGNS:
- Pale skin color or bluish tinge
- Abnormal heart rate and/or breathing (too fast or slow)
- Abnormal body temperature (too hot or cold)
- Delusions, hallucinations or paranoia
- Pupils that don’t react to changes in light
- Confusion, stupor (unresponsive but conscious), coma, or inability to be roused
Dancefestopia is an amazing adventure; you can enjoy the show without alcohol or illegal narcotics. Be smart about how much you consume. More booze does not equal more fun, and alcohol is not a beverage to cool off or rehydrate with. It’s important to remember that your body weight and height will factor into how much alcohol is safe to consume. We Love You!
