***Summer Camps/6-week summer session do not need to follow dress code & are welcome to wear any comfortable dance attire and colors that they wish***

Please see below for our Fall-Spring Season Dress Code.  Please let us know if you have any questions about the dress code below and we are happy to help!

PLEASE LABEL EACH SHOE, DANCE BAG, AND OTHER BELONGINGS WITH STUDENT’S FIRST AND LAST NAME PRIOR TO THEIR FIRST CLASS .

Commitment is key to the student’s long term success. We encourage students to attend all classes so that they do not get behind when learning material or preparing for recital. Students must arrive at least 5 minutes prior to their class starting and be fully dressed in proper dress code.

For safety purposes, no jewelry is allowed except for small stud earrings. We recommend for students to wear a cover-up over dance attire while entering/exiting the studio such as a t-shirt or warm-up.

No sports bras/2-piece tops so that the stomach/midriff area is covered. Purchasing new shoes may be required at the time of recital so that all students match in their costume.
