Class Attire

Dress Code Policy

In order to achieve the maximum discipline and safety in class, we ask that all students observe the following requirements. See the chart below for specific attire required in your child’s class.

All items can be purchased from the studio for personalized fitting service and lower cost.

Personal Grooming

Jewelry such as rings, watches, necklaces, bracelets, and loose earrings should be removed prior to class. Hair should be kept out of the face and off the neck as much as possible for every class. Students should never chew gum or eat food while taking class as choking could occur.

Fit of Clothing

Some of the less expensive leotards are a problem because of the cut and fit. They ride up and do not cover the backend of the child, and the child spends most of her time pulling or yanking on it. We have found that most leotards do not fit properly because they are too big. They should fit snugly and follow the curve of the back. If a leotard is too big, it is difficult for the teacher to correct or assist a child. Please buy Capezio  (NOT STUDIO BASICS) or Danskin Brand in correct sizes.

Footwear

Please – NO Wal-Mart brand shoes. Their ballet shoes are made in such a way that the teacher cannot tell if the child is pointing their feet. The tap shoes do not have a full tap on them, and the teacher cannot tell if your child is making the proper sound. Please buy Capezio brand to fit (not grow into). All items can be purchased from the studio for personalized fitting service and lower cost.

NOTE: If your child can still wear last year’s shoes, please DO NOT buy new ones. Buy the right color when you need a new size.
