STUDIO DRESS CODE & DANCEWEAR

  • All dress codes must be adhered to. We have a “borrow box” for students who come to class ill-prepared. If students repeatedly come to class without the proper dress code, they will sit out. 
  • Please note–shoes that are too BIG are difficult to dance in. Teachers cannot see if feet are pointed and cannot hear tap sounds properly when students have too much room! DO NOT buy shoes with “lots of room to grow”. 
  • Please do not wear old costumes with sequins and big skirts to class. 
  • Hair must be worn off the neck in a neat bun or securely fastened to head.
