Our dress code is designed to encourage unity and a sense of grooming among our students.  Please come properly attired.  Female students are required to have hair securely tied back from the face.  Ballet students with long hair must have it up in a bun.  If you are unsure of the proper way to put up your hair, please ask for direction from the studio office.  Hair too short for a bun must be pulled back neatly from face and off neck, secured with rubber bands, hair bands, or barrettes.

No jewelry is allowed in class other than rings, pierced earrings, or religious medallions. 

Please label dance supplies with your name and do not leave valuables in the dressing rooms.  We cannot be responsible for personal items left unattended.  Ladies, please feel free to bring your purses to class with you.

If students dress at home, a cover-up must be worn outside the studio.  Dance shoes should not be worn outside, and non-rubber soled street shoes are not allowed on studio A, B, and D dance floors.  For your convenience, economy tights, leotards, and transition tights will be available for purchase in the office throughout the year.
