Dress Code

Look like a dancer, feel like a dancer, act like a dancer.

The dress code is in place for three reasons:

  1. Dance Instructors need to be able to see what dancers’ bodies and muscles are doing in order to make corrections;
  2. When a child gets into an outfit that is used for dance class (and not the playground or just anywhere) they get their brains ready to dance; and
  3. Adherence to dress codes demonstrates a respect to the dance studio, dance teacher, and fellow dancers

* Dress code will be strictly enforced this year. Students will NOT be allowed to participate in class if they are not properly dressed.

Dress Code

  • Hair must be neatly off the face and neck.
  • Must wear dance shorts or dance skorts with a fitted tank top (active wear) or bodysuit.
  • Dancers must wear knee high socks, should they choose to wear tights, the knee-high socks or garters must be worn over the tights.
  • Dancers must wear proper dance shoes – either Highland Ghillies, ballet slippers, or gymnastics slippers.
  • There are to be no bare midriffs, halter-tops, or playground clothing (t-shirts/ loose shorts).
  • Please no ballet skirts.
  • Dancers may wear sweatshirts and sweatpants for warm-up only.
  • No jewelry; earring studs are acceptable.
