Dress Code:​
Thank you for supporting The Studio of Dance and observing our dress codes.  Our dress codes were created to promote the proper attitude and respect for all dance disciplines.  Being in uniform helps the student to feel like they belong.  There is something about seeing everyone else dressed the same that makes them feel like they have and deserve a place in class.  Being dressed properly also allows the teachers to see alignment and make corrections.  No street clothes or shoes will be permitted in the studios.  If you are not dressed properly with shoes and attire, you may be asked to observe class after one warning.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated and allows our staff to give their undivided attention to the needs of all our students.  Please review our dress code policy before purchasing new attire and shoes.
 
The following guidelines apply to all dancers: 
NO jewelry is to be worn in class. Not only is it a distraction, it can be dangerous and items can be lost or broken.  Post/Stud earrings are acceptable. • Please label all shoes and other related dance items with dancer’s name so that lost items may be returned. We are not responsible for lost items.
