Class Attire

Why we wear proper dance attire

It enables dancers to achieve the full range of movement and motion and allows instructors to observe proper technique, body movements, muscle use and alignment. It also creates a uniformed look, which lessens any visual distractions for the instructor and/or choreographer and builds a team atmosphere to reduce competition between dancers within a class.

What's not accepted in class

No jeans, loose fitting t-shirts, bulky sweaters or baggy pants. No watches or jewelry (small stud earrings are acceptable for class only, not for performances.)

Food, Gum and Candy are not allowed during class time.

*Water bottles are highly encouraged, with plain water. Please no juice or milk. Please label all water bottles and attire.*
