Dress Code

Part of the discipline of dance and gymnastics is coming to class prepared, dressed neatly, and in the proper attire. We believe our dress code improves the quality of our students’ education. By making dance- wear simple and uniform, teachers can more clearly see student’s bodies and therefore make more accurate corrections regarding movements and positions. 

Girls/Ladies: Do not wear underwear underneath tights! No bras underneath your leotard unless it is a dance bra that is hidden under your leotard. No spaghetti straps or cut out leotards. 

Dance class warmups need to be solid in color and fitted (no baggy/hooded sweatshirts). Must be removed at teacher request. 

**For classes in the Spring Dance Concert, there will be an additional costume fee of $50-$85. Deposits will be due November 12th and the balance due December 5th**
