Our Dress Code
A student’s dress is a reflection of their discipline and respect for the art form. Placement and line are also paramount in dance. Our dress code allows our teachers to observe and correct the posture and alignment of our students. We ask that students come dressed prepared to dance in the appropriate dress code. Hair needs to be secured and out of the face. No jewelry. No watches. No cell phones. Please keep all valuables at home.
