Dress Code and Policies

- Hair must be in a bun for ballet classes, and securely pulled up and away from the face for all other classes


- Students in Ensemble may be asked to purchase additional dance attire to be used in place of a costume fee in a performance or event.

- Students 10+ should purchase a skin-tone undergarment/leotard/bra for class and performances

- No sweatshirts, heavy sweaters, designs, brand names, logos, tutus, or loose jewelry.

- DDW, competition, or generic dance merchandise are acceptable, as long as it follows color code. (Ex: A fitted gray top with "I love dance" written in white.)


- Underwear and bright colored bra straps should not be visible.


-
All attire for classes other than ballet must be form-fitting but provide coverage.

- Colors must be black, gray, ballet pink, or white.


Dress code is an essential part of a productive, positive, and safe learning environment. It is in place to maintain fairness, comfort, and uniformity. Please verify your child's requirements and registration before purchasing dance wear. Students have 3 weeks after starting the season to have the appropriate attire. If a student arrives without the appropriate attire or footwear a few times, they may be asked to observe class.

More information on why dress codes matter can be found here.

Dance attire must be purchased at a dance retail store. "Dance" clothes sold in other stores are made to look like the real thing, but the ballet slippers are often slippery, they don't form to the foot, the tap shoes fall apart, and the leotards are not good quality and usually have attached skirts and sequins which do not follow most dance dress codes. Please note the following:
