Dance Class Dress Code

Often when a dancer puts on a costume for the first time, their dance really comes alive.    It helps them transform into the character they are meant to be and can take their performance to a new level.  In the same way, dressing appropriately for class helps our dancers be focused and give their class work the respect and effort it deserves.

Help your dancer succeed by being sure she’s dressed appropriately for dance class every week.
