Can I observe class?
Classes can be observed from our viewing windows so you can see your child’s progress. Please limit your observation so that all parents can have a chance to witness their child’s class. All doorways must be kept clear so we can maintain safe exits. If studio doors are closed, we ask that you respect the instructors choice to concentrate on teaching and learning during that session.

What Should I Wear?

Clothing

Jazz & Lyrical: Tights, leotards, close-fitting tops or jazz pants. Dance shorts with tights and close fitting shirts. Knee pads for floor work in upper level classes may be required.
Ballet: Tights and any color leotard so teachers can see proper alignment. Hair should be neat and/or tucked into a bun.
Boys: black ballet slippers, black tights or dance pants and T-shirt.
Hip Hop: No jeans. No large baggy shirts so teachers can see you move. Knee pads might be required.
Intensive Program: see dress code here.

Shoes

Dance shoes should only be worn in the studios, never outside or on concrete. Help your shoes last, avoid wear and tear and keep studio floors clean.

Jazz: Tan jazz shoes. No jazz sneakers.
Ballet: Pink ballet slippers or black for boys.
Hip Hop: Clean, non-marking, supportive tennis shoes used only for dance class, not everyday shoes.

Dancers should change into proper dance clothes before class and should come to class dressed to dance. Tights, leotards, bike shorts and close-fitting dance clothes are the only appropriate attire so teachers can observe proper body alignment. Hair should be neat and styled to be kept out of the face.

NO GUM, FOOD or DRINKS (except bottled water) IN STUDIOS!
