IMPORTANT! DRESS CODE/DANCEWEAR

UPDATED DRESS CODE/DANCEWEAR

DPAC Dress Code/Dancewear - https://bit.ly/3fGOTJT

 Approved dancewear (non ballet) and DPAC merch can be ordered   through DSP/Parent Portal>Online Store

  • Please contact us for any questions on styles, sizing, etc.
  • Orders can take 1-4 weeks for delivery depending on item

Please do not purchase dress attire/dance shoes prior to receiving the latest update on our dress code

Ballet leotards will be fitted in studio during summer classes and/or additional times. Please allow 3-4 weeks for dancewear items to arrive

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 and/or parent/caretaker will be notified.                    More information on dress codes can be found here.

Dance attire must be purchased at a dance retail store only (if not available through our online 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 will not meet the requirements for each ballet level. Please note the following:
