All students are required to wear appropriate dance attire to class.  Close-fitting clothing ensures that the teacher will be able to see each dancer’s alignment and positioning.  Baggy clothing can mask bad habits, making corrections difficult, and thus impeding the student’s progress.  Hair should be worn securely off the face in an appropriate style, to give the dancer a full line of sight while performing.  Well-fitting dance shoes allow students to benefit fully from their classes.

Students who are just trying classes should call the studio before purchasing dance clothes. We will tell you what you may wear until you have decided on a class.  If you already have appropriate dance shoes of a different color or style than our dress code requires, please talk to the studio before buying new ones.  Pointe students should not purchase shoes until they have been given guidance and approval from their teacher.  If you have a question about attire you have purchased, do not remove the tags and bring the item with you (not on you) to the studio for approval.

Please see below for specific requirements for your class, and contact the studio if you have questions.
