Our studio prides itself in both modesty and creativity. We want our students to be free to choose their colors, styles and patterns of dancewear. We do not allow midriffs to show. Appropriate footwear is required for each class. Hair is to be pulled back from the student’s face and secured. All shoes, dancewear and bags should be labeled with the child’s name. Dance shoes are not to be worn outside.
