Please read the dress code thoroughly and know the proper requirements for your child’s dance studies. We teach professionalism and a serious attitude toward training in dance. Therefore, we expect our students’ adherence to the dress code set forth by this studio. For this reason, we suggest you make all dance apparel purchases from a retail store which stocks those brands that are acceptable for the proper and modest dress for dance studies. A student who does not feel confident in the “look” may not be able to concentrate fully during class. Ill-cut body wear may be too revealing or cause constant pulling and tugging at the garment.
