Attire

 

Wearing the appropriate dance attire helps the dancer to concentrate on their technique and class instead of fussing with their clothing choices. It also helps the instructor to see the technique being taught, problems with alignment, and other important aspects of dance training. It is important for safety reasons as well to wear the correct shoes and form fitting clothing.

Other General Notes

--Students should carry their belongings in a dance bag to help organize their dance wear and the lobby space.

--Please print your child’s name on the bag as well as their other belongings especially their shoes.

--Dance shoes should never be worn outside

--Female students should wear their hair well secured and pulled away from the face: a neat bun is required for ballet. A pony-tail can be used for jazz, tap, creative movement, modern, and hip hop.

--Midriff must be covered in all classes

--No jeans and overly baggy pants as these hinder movement and create safety issues
