Attendance is very important for all classes. Dance is

a team sport and if a student is consistantly absent,

the teamcannot progress as a whole.  

Leotards and tights must be worn to dance class. 

Preschool classes may wear black or pink leotards. 

All others should be on a black leotard. Tan or black

tights may be worn for jazz, hip-hop or tap. Black

shorts or capris may also be worn. Pants that are over sized or fall under your feet are not allowed.

You must have your hair securely tied back away from your face. The appropriate shoes must be worn for each class. You cannot dance without shoes for safety reasons. We have a complete line of appropriate dance supplies. Our prices are very competitive and are the required style and color which you will need for the recital.
