Class Attire

Proper dance attire is an important part of dance class. It allows teachers to correct body alignment and technique and also gives the dancer a sense of professionalism. T-shirts, baggy shorts and sweats are not acceptable for class attire, but should be worn to and from the studio as cover-ups. Any dancers not properly dressed for class may be asked to sit out and observe. All dance clothing and shoes should be labeled with your dancer’s name to ensure its safe return if lost.
