Class Dress Code

We request that students carefully observe our dress code. For the best dance experience and SAFETY of all dancers, proper dress code must be followed in order to participate in class. Studio dress code and grooming will be enforced. It’s important for students to abide by the dress code policy for the following reasons:

  • * A neat and tidy appearance sets an attitude of attentiveness and respect for students, teachers, and the Art of Dance.
     

  • * Teachers must be able to see the dancer's body outline clearly in order to make proper corrections on posture, alignment, etc. . .

 

General Dress Code Guidelines

  1. Hair must be properly secured and tied up off of the face and neck for all styles of dance. No jewelry may be worn to class. Only small stud earrings are permitted.
     

  2. No loose fitting pants, blue jeans or t-shirts (they are not dance attire). No costumes or street clothing permitted in class.
     

  3. To protect our dance floors, dance shoes must NOT be worn outside. No outside and dirty street shoes are permitted on the dance floor.
     

  4. Please have your dancer carry all of their dance shoes, dancewear and other belongings in a dance bag. To help avoid misplacing belongings, please label all clothing (including shoes, leotards, coats, etc.).
     

  5. Students must have a neat and tidy look at all times with all proper dance attire, shoes, tights, etc... at every class.

 

Helpful Hints for Your Tiny Dancer

*Arrive early to give your child time to get accustomed with their new environment.

 

*Label all belongings, especially shoes.
 

*Please have your child use the bathroom before class to avoid disruptions.

 

*Dancers would benefit from having a healthy and non-sugary snack before class.
