Appropriate Attire for Classes

Dance Class Attire*


 1. Girls must wear a leotard (any color) and solid color tights for ballet, tap, and jazz class. Skirts are permitted. Boys must wear a white tee shirt and black or navy shorts.  For hip hop class, girls may wear capri length pants or long shorts. Pink ballet shoes for girls, black ballet shoes for boys.  Black, buckle or velcro, Mary Jane style taps for girls, buckle or slip on taps for boys. Jazz shoes should be tan in color. Hip hop shoes should be black and approved by the instructor.


2. Ballet, Jazz, and/or Hip Hop shoes are required for class.  Students must wear the appropriate shoe for each class.  Ballet shoes (no drawstring) for ballet class, jazz shoes for jazz class, etc.  Bare feet are only acceptable for Modern/improvisation and Lyrical classes.  Students that forget to bring their shoes will be given a one (1) time forgiveness.  After that grace period, the student will only be allowed to observe class if they forget their shoes.


3. Hair must be pulled back away from the face unless it is too short to do so.  (Ponytail, secure barrettes, etc.)


4. Please limit jewelry during class.  Stud earrings, and rings allowed.  Long earrings, necklaces,  and bracelets should be removed before class (including watches).  This is simply a safety issue so that no one will be injured during class.


5. Students of age to take Pointe class will need Ballet slippers as well as their Pointe shoes.  (At Barre in Greenville or Dance Outfitters in Chesapeake can properly fit your child for Pointe shoes.  It is extremely important that their Pointe shoes are fitted properly.) Dance Outfitters will give a discount if you mention what studio you are with.


*NO JEANS are allowed to be worn for any class. If a student arrives for class in Jeans, they will not be allowed to participate. Jeans are movement restrictive and are not acceptable as dance wear.


These guidelines are to be adhered to at all times.  If the dress code is not followed, students will not be allowed to participate in class.  They will be asked to sit and watch for the day.  By wearing the correct clothing in class, it helps in teaching proper body alignment and makes for a better dancer.
