Dress Code

Please adhere to the following dress code as it ensures the instructor’s ability to see joint and muscle work and make necessary corrections.   The dress code is standard at most accomplished dance institutions.   Failure to abide by any of the dress code rules may result in the class instructor asking the student to sit and watch the class instead of participating.

  • Loose or dangling jewelry presents a safety hazard, and dance attire other than proper dance skirts are a distraction for dancers and are not allowed. 
  • No Isotoner slip-ons for ballet shoes.   All ballet shoes must be leather.  
  • Girls: tights are to be worn underneath the leotard.   Please sew on all shoe elastics and tuck in drawstrings.   No halter style leotards.   Hair for girls for ballet must be pulled back off of the face and neck into a neat bun.   If hair is too short to be pulled back into a bun, please wear a head band to keep the hair from falling on the face.   For all other classes, hair for boys and girls must be out of the eyes and off the face. 
  • All clothing and shoes should be marked with the student's name.
  • Dance attire that you will change into must be carried in a proper dance bag.  
  • Students should not wear leg warmers, sweaters, skirts or extra clothing of any kind in the classroom.   Long-sleeved leotards (not sweaters) are appropriate in cold weather. 
  • A cover up must be worn over ballet dance wear to and from the studio.
  • Dance shoes (ballet, jazz, tap) must never be worn from home to the studio and from studio to home to prevent injury and damage to shoes.
