  • In an effort to keep your dancer safe, they may be asked to sit and observe class if they are not properly dressed for class

  • Undergarments should not be visible at the bottom of a leotard, and most dancers choose not to wear underwear under their tights and leotards. If you do need to wear them, please wear a neutral/skin color with a higher cut leg.

  • Adolescent and adult dancers may need additional support in the form of a dance bra, a sports bra, or for gentlemen a dance belt (like an athletic cup, but without the hard plastic). We’d be happy to connect you with resources about sizing.

  • Students must enter and exit the building with street shoes and a cover-up over leotards and tights. Dancers MAY NOT wear their uncovered dance uniform or dance shoes when entering/exiting the building. 

  • Please leave jewelry at home. Necklaces, bracelets, Apple Watches, rings, and dangling earrings are not allowed to be worn during class as a safety measure. Studs in the ears are fine. No Apple Watches are allowed. Please leave those at home as they can be a distraction during class.
