Dress Code

Dress Code 

It is important to dress the part in dance class! This helps create equality in the classroom and improves the dancer's focus. Dancers will not be allowed to enter the classroom without being fully prepared for class. Please remember that photographs will be taken at the studio and possibly posted onto social media for marketing purposes, so it is vital that all our dancers are appropriately dressed. 

Cover Up: All dancers will be asked to cover up when they are outside the actual dance studio. Any dancer spending time in a public area of the studio will need to be covered in a cover up.

Shoes: Pink canvas split sole ballet shoes for girls and black ballet shoes for boys.
