Although we encourage students to express themselves, it is important for students to abide by a dress code. We have a dress code policy for the following reasons:
A neat and tidy appearance sets an attitude of attentiveness and respect for the students, teacher, and the art of dance. How a dancer feels will affect how they dance.
Teachers must be able to see the dancer’s body outline clearly in order to make proper corrections on posture, alignment, etc.
Please be sure to adhere to the following guidelines:
Unless stated otherwise HAIR should be pulled into a bun or ponytail.
Small ear studs are the only acceptable jewelry.
Our Dress Code is Mandatory for all ages. Your dancer will not be able to participate if they are not dressed in the right attire.
