A dress code is important, not only because it is part of the tradition of formal dance training and creates uniformity, but also because putting on the “gear” helps the dancer mentally prepare for the class ahead. This is as true for small children as it is for young adults we will be selling everything your child needs for class. Dress codes are helpful for us to be able to see the body and make corrections. Jeans and regular street clothes inhibit movement!
A dancer’s hair is as much a part of the dancer’s uniform as the tights, leotard and shoes. For females with long hair, the hair must be puled back out of the face. Hip Hop classes are the exception. As long as the hair does not interfere with dancing, students may wear whatever style they wish.
Note: If dress code requirements are not met, a reminder note will be sent home to the parents or guardians. This also includes hair not being up and out of the face.
