Attire

Attire is extremely important for dance class. It assists in ensuring the instructor can see alignment of children during exercises to ensure that they are safe. We are specific regarding attire to ensure that all students are clear on expectations.

Important notes: Students are not permitted to wear tank tops or shirts that show their stomachs. Dance shorts must be appropriate length and covers parts they intend to cover.
