DANCE ATTIRE & ACCESSORIES
Proper dancewear and footwear is required for all classes. To ensure proper dance education, a teacher should be able to see body alignment. This is not possible with loose fitting clothing. Hair needs to be secured away from the face. Longer hair needs to be secured in a pony tail, bun or braid.
Ballet and combo classes- leotard and tights with optional skirts or bike shorts
Jazz, tap, lyrical and pom classes- leotards, bra tops or tank/camisole tops that fit snug to the body with bike/bootie shorts, skirts, skorts, jazz pants (must be hemmed to proper length and snug around the knees), or unitards (short or long). Tights are required for all classes; please no bare legs!
Hip Hop classes- clothing should be comfortable and fitted, yet allow for movement. Please no denim.
