Dress Code


It's important for students to abide by a dress code policy for the following reasons:

A neat and tidy appearance sets an attitude of attentiveness and respect for students, teacher, and the art of dance.

Teachers must be able to see the dancer's body outline clearly in order to make proper
corrections  on posture, alignment, etc.

Having all students in class in a uniform allows for the teacher to easily see if one of the students is in need of attention.

Proper shoes allow for proper technique and safety.

Hair properly secured and tied up off the face and neck is for safety and avoids distraction.

Jewelry is not allowed in classes unless with teacher permission. If it is allowed, jewelry must not be loose or dangling to avoid injury and distraction.

Gum chewing is not allowed due to
danger of choking, appearance, and cleanliness of the studio.


There  will be a 3 week grace period once a student is enrolled. After the 3 weeks, students are expected to step onto the studio floor in proper dress code.  If a student is not dressed properly, the following procedure applies to each semester:

1st time violation: reminder of the class dress code

2nd time: warning and notification to student’s parent or guardian.

3rd time:
student may be asked to observe class and not participate.

Unless otherwise stated, class uniforms are specific in color and brand. Students are required to follow
dress code at all times, unless teacher states otherwise. It is recommended that dancewear be ordered through the studio to ensure proper style, size and fit and approved brand and style.  Students that are not in studio approved dress code will be asked to sit out of class until dress code is followed. Dancewear can be ordered through the website or at the front desk during office hours.  Families may order dancewear directly with vendors as long as the item is consistent with the dress code.


Prior season’s color leotard, t-shirt, or tank is accepted as dress code until
replacement is needed due to sizing or condition (dancewear should be in good condition, i.e. no stains or tears.)   This applies only to dancers who participated in the 2016-2017 season. We appreciate an effort to be in new season’s dress code by December 2017.  


PLEASE NOTE these general guidelines:

All dance shoes must be worn only in
studio.  Please do not wear dance shoes in from the street, change into dance shoes once inside the studio.  This will help protect our dance floor as well as your dance shoe.  “Studio only” shoes indicates street shoes that are only to worn for dance purposes inside the dance studio.

Warmups - Students are welcome to wear a form fitting solid color warm up at the start of class if they feel cold. Warmups should fit the body tightly and must not cover the wrist. No hoods or cowl necks.

In regards to undergarments:

bras are only to be worn if necessary for support and should follow the line of the leotard or tank worn. For instance, if the leotard is two straps, avoid
racerback bra which interrupts the line of the back.

We recommend students do not wear underwear under tights and a leotard for ballet class.  If underwear is needed, please have it non-visible.
