Please review our Dress code carefully!

·         Hair – all hair must be pulled back from face and secured.  Long hair should be in a bun for ballet class and off the face and neck for other classes such as in a ponytail.  Short hair    

          should be secured with head bands or barrettes.  Please have extra ponytail holders, hair pins, etc. in your dance bag just in case you need them.

·         Jewelry – not allowed in class unless small earrings.

·         Warmup Clothes – should be removed before class begins or at the discretion of your instructor.

·         No underwear, boxer shorts, soffe shorts, t-shirts (except for Boys Hip Hop), denim, or other non-dancewear items to be worn during class; it limits the instructor to see students’

          alignment properly.

·         No bras:  if you need support, wear a nude dance bra or nude body liner under your leotard – see us for help.

·         DO NOT WEAR YOUR DANCE SHOES OUTSIDE. You will not only risk ruining your shoes, but our dance floors could be damaged as well.

·         Please LABEL all shoes and other related dance items with your dancer’s name so lost items may be returned.
