Shoes that are required to be painted to match recital costumes can be worn the following season.
DRESS CODE & HAIR
Students should always have proper dance shoes and clothing. The weather cannot be used as an excuse. The dance rooms are kept at a consistent temperature year round. We believe that "if you look like a dancer, you will feel like a dancer."
All 45 minute Ballet classes or Intensives level Ballet:Girls: any solid black leotard with light pink tights-hair in a bun. Black ballet sweaters, black leg warmers and black fitted Ballet sweater shorts are allowed. No skirts. Classical Bun (see hair below)
Boys: black shorts, sweat pants or dance pants and black shirt.
Hip Hop: Any comfortable clothing/athletic wear that you can move in.
ALL OTHER CLASSES
GIRLS: Wear leotard and tights, unitards, bike unitards or two-piece spandex/lycra of any color or style. No T-shirts or loose baggy clothing allowed. These rules are so dancers will be comfortable with their bodies and aren't self-conscious when it comes time to put on a form fitting costume for the recital. Teachers also need to see body lines for correct technique.
BOYS: Wear T-shirt and shorts or running suit. No jeans, pants with zippers, over sized shirts or over sized pants.
Students must be in correct dance attire & have hair pulled back properly to participate in class. After one warning, students will be asked to sit out. Please do not put your child or us in this position.
