Dress Code

Dress Code 

For proper training of our students, we’ve instituted a dress code for Pre-Ballet, Primary, and Youth Division Levels. This enables our teachers to correctly assess placement of dancers’ bodies. When enrolling for classes, we ask that all registrants take note of these important procedures listed below.

All dancers must arrive and leave the studio with warm-up clothes over their dance attire or in street clothing. Ballet slippers are not to be worn outside. Please arrive and exit the building in street shoes.

At this time, we encourage all students to dress for class prior to their arrival at the school. Dressing rooms will be made available for those who cannot dress beforehand. There will be a limit of one student in the dressing area at a time. Restrooms are not to be used for changing.

Dancers arriving 10 minutes after the start of class may be asked to observe and take notes rather than participate in class, at the teacher’s discretion. Dancers have the ability to perform their best in class with a thoughtful approach to preparing themselves, both physically and mentally, when not in a rush. We ask those that bring our youngest participants to class, help demonstrate that their dancer is ready to learn by arriving in the correct uniform, hair properly pulled back, and in a timely manner.

Hair

Pre-Ballet & Primary  Hair should be pulled away from face and neck in a ponytail, preferably in a bun. Hair that is too short for a bun or ponytail must be pulled back and secured with hair pins or clips.

Level 1-6  All dancers must have their hair secured off their face and neck. For most dancers, this will be in a bun. We understand that dancers have different textures and length of hair. Those that cannot wear a proper bun need to ensure that stray pieces, braids, and bangs are neatly pinned back with hair pins and a hair net.
