2021 Dance Season Dress Code

A Note for Preschool Aged Dancers

Going to dance class for young children can be as much about the outfit as it is about moving to music. For this reason, there is no mandatory uniform for any of our Creative Movement classes.

Children should wear comfortable, form-fitting clothing or dancewear that allows them to move freely. Leggings or shorts with a form-fitting tank top or t-shirt are acceptable and appropriate for both boys and girls. Dancers may also wear a bodysuit (with or without tights).

Our studio sells once piece tunics that have a capped sleeve and attached skirt specifically for our Creative Movement students if that is preferable. Elaborate costume pieces and over-sized tutus should be saved for designated “dress up” days. Students may also choose between bare feet and ballet slippers for class, but please NO SOCKS.
