It is important to have students ready and properly dressed for class before entering the classroom. Please use the restroom be-fore class to avoid a loss of class time. Dancers work harder and stay more focused when properly dressed for class. The studio is a “special” place with a “special” dress requirement. It is important to be dressed properly to receive the most out of your dance class experience.


Shoe Guidelines

We ask that all tap and jazz shoes be black in color, and ballet shoes be either pink for girls or black for boys. These are the required colors for all recital performances. We highly recommend split sole ballet and jazz shoes, an exact style is not required.

If you currently have dance shoes that do not meet this criteria you may wear them for class, however, you will need the proper shoes for recitals.
