Following a dress code makes the dancers take the class and themselves seriously by dressing the part. Dress code is important in every class, even the youngest classes, because it helps eliminate distractions.

No jewelry and no t-shirts may be worn. You may purchase dancewear and shoes through the studio or we can supply you with a list of places you can purchase dancewear and shoes.

The Importance of Dress Code

Attire

Leotards allow instructors to see the dancers body lines. Baggy clothes mask these lines, obscuring essential aspects of technique for instructors critiques. In the winter months, dancers are permitted to tight-fitting ballet/dance sweaters. NO JEANS OR DRESSES IN ANY CLASSES!

Tights

Wearing tights is proper dance etiquette for ANY style of dance class. Tights are also worn because they protect legs from scratches and floor burn.

Shoes

Shoes assigned to certain styles of dance are to be worn to each class as each shoe is designed for that specific style of dance. Please WRITE YOUR NAME IN ALL YOUR DANCE SHOES and keep them in your dance bag or cubby at all times.

Hair

Hair is to be pulled back and out of dancers faces for any style of dance. For ballet classes, it is highly recommended for hair to be worn in a bun to avoid hair hitting the face, making it more difficult to turn.
