Attire

Proper dance attire must be worn at all times. Students’ hair must be neat and in place, pulled back off of their face and neck. In Ballet, a bun is required at all times. Loose hair is an impediment while dancing and is a distraction to the dancer during class. When hair is secured properly, it allows the student to completely focus on their dancing. No jewelry (except for small earrings) is to be worn to class or rehearsals. The appropriate dance shoes must be worn in class. Ballet and Jazz can not be executed properly in bare feet or tights. Dance warm-ups may be worn during barre/warm-up at the teacher’s discretion. In order to make accurate technical corrections, the teacher must be able to view the student clearly without the obstruction of extra garments. It is suggested that leotard and tights be worn without undergarments, however there are dance bras and nude dance undergarments with clear straps for the young ladies who need this. Please change into dance shoes when you arrive. Do not wear dance shoes outdoors!
