Download Dress Code by Genre
 

All Genres:  Students should come to class wearing minimal jewelry.  Long earrings are especially unsafe.  Students should also come with their hair pulled back and away from their face.  Please label your dance shoes to help ensure they are not lost!  Please no jeggings or midriff-baring tops!  We also ask that students do not wear street shoes in the studio.

Ballet/Pointe: A leotard and skirt/shorts or fitted dance attire that is comfortable to move in.  Tops such as tanks or fitted tees are acceptable.  Bottoms may include shorts (with tights), yoga or jazz capris or leggings.  Wearing fitted clothing allows your teacher to be sure you are moving your body in the correct way to prevent injury.  It is highly recommended that pointe dancers wear tights with their pointe shoes.  Ballet slippers are required.  Any style is appropriate so long as they are ballet pink (not white or black.)

Lyrical: A leotard and shorts or fitted dance attire that is comfortable to move in.  Tops such as tanks or fitted tees are acceptable.  Bottoms may include shorts (with tights), yoga or jazz capris and leggings.  Wearing fitted clothing allows your teacher to be sure you are moving your body in the correct way to prevent injury.  Tan jazz shoes, foot undies, dance paws, or half-sole jazz shoes in nude are required.

Jazz: A leotard and skirt/shorts or fitted dance attire that is comfortable to move in.  Tops such as tanks or fitted tees are acceptable.  Bottoms may include shorts (with tights), yoga or jazz capris and leggings.  Wearing fitted clothing allows your teacher to be sure you are moving your body in the correct way to prevent injury.  Black jazz shoes, either slip on or lace up are required.

Tap: A leotard and skirt/shorts or fitted dance attire that is comfortable to move in.  Tops such as tanks or fitted tees are acceptable.  Bottoms may include shorts (with tights), yoga and jazz capris or leggings.  Wearing fitted clothing allows your teacher to be sure you are moving your body in the correct way to prevent injury.  Tap shoes in an oxford or slip on style are required.  Please no heeled tap shoes.  (For young students, elastics to replace the laces are recommended.)

Hip Hop: It is preferred if you wear loose or baggy clothing that you are comfortable moving in.  Acceptable attire includes tank tops, t-shirts, sweat pants, dance pants, shorts, athletic apparel, etc.  Students should have black hip hop shoes.  New this year: Advanced Hip hop students should have “double platinum sequin sneakers” (Converse style) dance shoes.

Acrobatics: A leotard and shorts or fitted dance attire that is comfortable to move in.  Tops such as tanks or fitted tees are acceptable.  Bottoms may include shorts, yoga and jazz capris or leggings.  It is highly recommended that students wear a leotard or sports bra under their clothing, as they will be upside down throughout the class.  Boys should wear a shirt long enough to tuck in.  Student should be bare foot during class.
