DANCE ARTIST & EXPLORATION PROGRAMS, 3rd grade and up

A dancer’s attire greatly determines the attitude toward her/his class work.  Therefore we require the standard of appropriate neatness be observed at all times.

  • Correct shoes are required for each class.
  • No jewelry, except small earrings, is preferred.
  • Underwear should not be worn under tights or leotards.
  • T-shirts and baggy outerwear are not to be worn in class.
  • Ballet skirts, fitted ballet sweaters, fitted dance shorts are optional over leotards.

Girls: Dark Purple (not lavender or periwinkle) or Black leotard for all classes; pink or flesh color convertible tights.  Black leggings, or jazz pants are acceptable for non-Ballet classes.
Boys: white fitted t-shirt and black pants for all classes.

Hair should be neatly secured neatly away from the face.  Dancers will not be allowed to begin class until their hair is pulled up and away from the face.  A bun or similar style is required for ballet classes.
