The Proper Dress For Students

The Proper Dress- Dance wear is designed to allow a student freedom of movement while allowing a teacher to see the lines and musculature of the body. For these reasons, simple styles work best, however, we also understand that each child has a unique personality and this is often displayed through the choice of clothes. We ask you to choose your dance wear keeping in mind the ultimate goal of the dance lesson: maximum freedom of movement with nothing distracting! Girls may wear any color and any style leotard (except leotards with suspender straps). Please wear tights. For modesty sake, and for comfort in every activity, a dancers legs must be covered. Jazz pants are allowed during tap/jazz class. Ballet skirts with elastic waistbands may be worn. Ballet skirts that require tying are not acceptable.

Boys may wear bike shorts of any color and T-shirt of any color tucked in.

For all Students: Do not wear costumes to class. It distracts other dancers, and confines certain floor exercises. Traditional dance wear only!!!
