What To Wear

Why is following the dress code important?

Not only is the dress code in place for the safety of your dancer, but to teach your dancer discipline and uniformity in dance. The first weeks of class dancers will be given a grace period while they purchase necessary items. After this period has ended if a dancer is not properly dressed he/she may be asked to sit out of class. 

Discounted leotards and tights are available to purchase at the studio.

  • BALLET - Leotard (color of leotard pending level, please see below), pink tights and pink ballet shoes (split sole), skirts, wraps, shorts over tights or tutus are allowed. No dance pants, unless it is a male dancer.
