Studio Dress Code
The Importance Of Following The Dress Code:
A large part of dance training is the discipline that students learn in class and then carry with them throughout their lives. This discipline begins by arriving in class on time with the proper attire and hairstyle. By arriving in this manner students are better mentally prepared to focus on the task at hand and in return receive the maximum benefit from their dance classes. Also as an instructor it is much easier to assess and correct a student's technique and physicality (i.e. their posture and placement) in a bodysuit and tights. When working on choreography it is much easier to clean the small details of a dance when students are all wearing the same attire and students and instructors are not being distracted by fly-away hairs or jewelry.
Hair is to be pulled off the face for ALL dance classes, with the exception of Hip Hop only. For all ballet classes, hair should be in a ballet bun, with long bangs and fly-away pieces clipped back.
