Kids & Teen Dress Regulations:

Dress code is enforced in all classes. These requirements demonstrate respect for the art of dance and provide a measure of uniformity and professionalism and aid to avoid distraction.

General rules for all students:

* Dance shoes are never to be worn outside.

* Bare midriffs, baggy tshirts, jeans/denim are not permitted.

* Jewelry & watches are not to be worn in class.

* Hair for all classes must be tied back securely off the face. Short hair is to be held back with barrettes or a hair band. Ballet students must have hair in bun. A hair workshop will be scheduled for parents of younger classes in the first couple weeks of class.
