All students are required to adhere to the studio's dress code. The following dress code has been chosen to ensure the easiest and most comfortable attire to dance in.
The dress code creates the focus to stay on taking a good class rather than comparing dance wardrobes. Plus, baggy sweatshirts or sweatpants make it difficult to observe the dancers' bodies well enough to offer the technical corrections needed to build strong dancers. Straight knees and proper body alignment are hard to see underneath layers of baggy clothing.
Dance Class: (Girls) Solid Black Leotard or Unitard with tights. NO BAGGY SHORTS OR CLOTHING. Biker shorts and skirts may be worn over leotard. All students are to wear tights under their uniform - NO BARE LEGS. No Sequins, Pictures, or Personal Names on Leotards.
