Dress Code

To allow the instructors to view the body line easily, it is important that proper attire is worn and hair is secured to the head for every class. Click here to view a video with instructions on how to put your child’s hair in a bun. For your convenience, leotards, tights, dance bags and shoes in sizes toddler through adult may be purchased in our boutique. PLEASE NOTE: A leotard is the garment that covers the torso, while tights are the leg coverings worn with a leotard.
