dress code and proper attire

Required dance-wear and dance shoes must be worn to all classes. Failure to wear required dance-wear to class could result in a students being asked to sit out of class. For safety reason, dancers are not permitted to wear jewelry.  Hair must be securely tied back preferably in a bun or ponytail for all classes. Tight fitting clothing is a must. There are reasons behind our dress code - Teachers need to be able to see the body placement of the dancers. T-Shirts and lose shorts should not be worn (except hip hop and tap). In gymnastics classes, NO lose clothing should be worn, it poses a risk to both your child and their teachers. Both parents and teachers want your child to become the best dancer possible and it starts with this simple things.
