Required Dance Attire
Because dance is a discipline and requires ease of movement and a degree of decorum, proper dance attire is required for our classes. This allows the teacher to see the dancer's proper placement and enables them to train the student safely. For safety reasons, dancers are not allowed to wear jewelry to class. The teacher may ask the student to remove their jewelry until class is over. Hair should always be pulled back out of the eyes with no loose hair pieces. Buns are a requirement in all ballet classes.
