DRESS CODE

Note about shoes for ALL CLASSES:

Shoes of low quality may be required to be replaced. Please purchase your shoes from us, or a reputable dancewear store.

SOCKS are not permitted in any Recreational/Technique Dance Classes unless they are DANCE SPECIFIC socks with traction.

Place a Custom Order with us!

Pick out dress code-approved dance wear at the studio! We will size your dancer so that everything fits perfectly, and if we don't have the style you LOVE in stock - we will order it for you!

A neat and tidy appearance sets an attitude of attentiveness and respect for both dancers & teachers as well as the art of dance. 
 

We don’t expect you to have everything perfect for your first class, however, professional dance attire is expected. Please have your dancer wear dance clothes, if possible, or plain colored comfortable clothing that they can move in (free from Patterns, Logos, and Distracting Designs- unicorns, animals, tie dye, etc.). 

Your dancer can wear socks or bare feet for their first class, and we will get them fitted for dance shoes when you come to the studio for class!
