Dance Attire Requirements

It is important that students come to class dressed in the proper dance attire, where body lines are clearly visible to the instructors. This is necessary for safe and proper instruction. Remember, taking pride in your overall appearance will contribute to greater confidence and success as a dancer.

Students should have their hair tied back and off their face for all classes. Ballet students must have their hair in a neatly secured bun, absolutely no exceptions. **If students have more than one class a night please ensure hair is properly secured before the first class.**


Any fitted clothing i.e. bodysuit, tank/half top, shorts or leggings. Bare feet. NO LOOSE CLOTHING.
