Class Procedures & Dress Code

Please arrive 5 minutes prior to class start time dressed in the proper attire, with correct shoes and hairstyle. Proper technical warm-ups are done at the beginning of class and are vital to preventing injuries.

 

Dance Dress Code: 

All dancers must be in dancewear. Every student MUST wear a LEOTARD. Color and style is optional. For dancers 7 years and older, a leotard and tights are mandatory for all ballet classes. You may wear dance shorts, dance pants, or tights with the leotard, but a leotard must be worn to every class.

 

NO EXCEPTIONS! 

Hair must be pulled back out of the face. 

No street clothes or street shoes will be allowed in class.

NO CELL PHONES!

All tap shoes, jazz shoes, and jazz sneakers MUST be black. All ballet shoes MUST be pink leather, not satin bedroom slippers. For your convenience, all of these items are available in our store.

All dance students will need black jazz pants for the recital. Buy them now and you can also use them in class all year.

Gymnastics Dress Code:

All gymnasts MUST wear gym clothes, not street clothes, to class every week. You may wear gym shorts and/or footless tights with the leotard. No baggy clothing and no shorts with buckles or zippers (they catch on the equipment) will be allowed. 

T-shirts must be worn over sports bras.

For your convenience, these items are for sale in our store. Long hair should be pulled back neatly and no jewelry worn during classes. This is for the safety of the gymnast.

Make-Up Classes & Absences

You may make up missed classes in classes that fit the dancer's age and skill level. However, they MUST be pre-arranged. Missed classes are not refundable. Tuition is still due to hold your spot. There are no refunds if you drop a class in the middle of the month. We request that you call or email the studio to inform the teacher and staff of any absences, illnesses, or problems the student may be having, or to arrange a make-up class.
