Dress Code


Why a dress code?

  1. It helps instructors see the alignment and positioning of dancers. Loose and restricting clothing makes corrections harder to find/fix, creating bad habits that can be hard to break.
  2. It helps create the discipline to be responsible for uniform and its importance. It produces fewer distractions and helps the dancer to focus.
  3. It helps each class feel more like a team. Being in uniform and not street clothes make them feel like a dancer. The more unified the look of the group/team, the easier to spot mistakes and make corrections quickly.
  4. It helps boost confidence when all participate in the uniform. No student feels out of place or uncomfortable for not looking the part.
  5. TIP: Dedicate ONE dance outfit specifically to class. It helps the student recognize that it’s time to focus on dance.

THE DRESS CODE No’s:

  • No zip-ups, sweatshirts, hoodies, or t-shirts allowed.
  • No words, pictures, or patterns on the uniform
  • No items of clothing can have glitter, sparkles, or sequins. These materials cause the dance floor to be slippery.
  • No skirts when not on the optional list.
  • No gymnastics leotards, please.
