APPROPRIATE CLASS ATTIRE
We require our students to present a neat appearance at all times. This includes both hair and dress. Part of learning to dance is to present the proper appearance; this includes clothing that allows the teacher to see proper shape and placement of the body. No large or dangling jewelry may be worn in class. Students should not enter and leave the premises dressed only in leotard and tights. This is not proper. Please wear a "cover-up".
Shoe styles and colors for performance will be decided by your teacher and you will be required to have the proper shoes for performance. Dance shoes should not be worn outside or as street shoes. Students should wear a cover-up outside the studio. Proper clothing and shoes must be obtained prior to the start of classes. If you plan to purchase shoes please check with your teacher regarding proper style and fit. Dance shoes should not be worn outside or as street shoes.
Encore has a list of shoes we will use this season. Purchasing them thru Encore will save the dancer & parents’ time from running around, money, and guesswork.
