Being properly dressed for classes allows the dancer’s to use their body’s to their full capacity, while also allowing the instructors to see, improve, and train their technique.

Girls and Ladies: A leotard and tights are mandatory attire for all dancers.  We do require that hair be pulled up and off the dancer’s face and also that jewelry is kept to a minimum.  However we do love to see you add your own personal flare!  Have fun with it and make it your own! Ballet skirts, tutus, dance shorts, leg warmers, and sweaters that are fitted are all acceptable to be worn over a leotard and tights.  Hip Hop classes are allowed to wear leggings and sweatpants as long as they are worn over a leotard and tights.  At anytime during class you may be asked to remove the clothing that is being worn over your leotard and tights.    

 

Boys and Gentlemen: A sleeveless shirt or t-shirt with basketball shorts or sweatpants that do not touch the floor.  

Dress code is strictly enforced and is at the discretion of each instructor.  All dancers are required to wear the proper dance shoes for each class.  Upon registration you will be told what shoes your child will need.  We ask that you do not wear your dance shoes outside of the studio.  No street shoes are allowed into the classroom as they ruin the dance floors.

DRESS CODE

Whichever you choose, dancers will leave classes feeling extremely knowledgable and with a huge smile!
