Dress Code & Dressing Policies:
Dancers should come with their uniforms already on and hair done. Please label all dance-wear as we cannot be responsible for lost items. After class children should layer their outside clothing and change fully at home so that we can keep to a timely schedule with drop-offs and pickups. ***For pickup from school programs there will be time to get changed and ready for classes.
Girls: White sleeveless leotard, white chiffon dance skirt (not a tutu) pink tights and pink full soled ballet shoes. Hair must be tied neatly off the face and neck in a bun or large clip.
Recommended Leotard/Skirt for girls click HERE
Boys: Black men's dance tights or leggings, fitted white or black t-shirt, black full soled ballet shoes.
*We recommend www.discountdance.com as a resource for quality dance wear at good prices.
Dresscode is the same for tap & Musical Theater/Broadway Dance, other than the shoes. All children should have TAP shoes for these classes.
