Dress Code 


We do have a dress code.  It is important for the instructor to be able to see the student’s body alignment.

Ballet - Solid colored Leotard and pink tights are required for all ballet classes. Female dancers need to wear a bun in their hair. 


Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Lyrical, Tumbling - Active wear is appropriate for all other styles. Tops need to be fitted. Leotards, Tanks, T's, and Sports bras are the most common tops. Dancers mainly wear shorts or leggings on the bottom. We prefer solid colors. Female dancers need to have hair pulled back. 


Hip-hop -  baggy clothing is appropriate as long as it is not distracting. Jeans should never be worn.


Boys have the same requirement of wearing Active wear to class and no jeans. 


Dancers do need the correct shoe for the style of dance the are taking.
