Dress Code

Listed below are all the dress requirements for each style of dance.  It is important for our students to follow the dress code.  We are a studio that nurtures modesty and some of the requirements are to ensure that this is carried out.  Our dress code is in place to help our teachers see the lines of the body so they can correct incorrect body alignment.  As we educate our students in each style of dance, we feel it is important for students to know how to dress properly for each style.  We want our students to not only know how to dance professionally, but to also dress professionally.
