Dress Code

What a dancer wears to class is important.  Each class has a specific uniform that the dancers are required to wear (see below for details).

The uniform helps create a sense of discipline and order, while allowing the teachers to see what a student's body is doing. Students in each level are assigned a specific uniform and are expected to wear their uniform, along with proper dance shoes, for all regular classes. Students may be unable to participate in class if the dress code is not adhered to. 

Please note for our summer classes, camps and workshops, dancewear is required, however the exact style and color is not required.
