Class Attire

Correct attire for each class is essential to get the most and best experience possible out of a class. Clothing choice seems like a minuscule part of a dancer’s education, but it contributes in many ways. First, it ensures that the instructor can see the dancer’s lines; this is important for proper instruction. Secondly, proper dance attire prevents clothing from restricting a dancer’s movement during class, which keeps them from performing their best. Most importantly, it encourages the optimal mindset in a dancer for confidence, growth, and success. If a dancer comes into class with a confident mindset, they will perform to the best of their ability. For example, a football player doesn’t show up to practice without cleats and pads, so a dancer shouldn't show up to class without their proper attire. Here at FCDC, we implement these dress codes to give your dancer the best dance education possible.
