Class Attire

Correct attire for each class is essential to get the best experience out of class. Proper attire ensures  the instructor can see the dancer’s lines; this is important for proper instruction. It also prevents clothing from restricting a dancer’s movement during class, which keeps them from performing their best. Most importantly, it encourages the optimal mindset for confidence, growth, and success. If a dancer comes into class with a confident mindset, they will perform to the best of their ability. We implement these dress codes to give your dancer the best dance education possible.
