Dress Code


WHy a dress code?

As a studio, we need to adhere to a dress code policy to ensure our dancers' proper body alignment and positioning. Baggy clothing can mask bad habits, making improvement difficult. Dress code also teaches our students discipline, and minimizes distractions in the studio. When dressed like a dancer, children FEEL like a dancer and will be more confident!  

 If there is a a sensory issue that makes dress code difficult, please let us know so we can problem solve together. Adult and therapeutic classes do not have a formal dress code.
