Class Attire

PLEASE LABEL ALL DANCE SHOES WITH DANCER’S FIRST AND LAST NAME. THANK YOU!

Pre-Dance: Ballet shoes should be leather or canvas ONLY, with leather or suede soles and an elastic strap across the arch. Slip-on satin shoes (like the kind found at Target) without elastic are meant for dress-up only — their soles are too slippery for the dance floor, and they slip off the foot too easily. (There is no color requirement for class, but those doing ballet in the spring recital will wear pink shoes.) If your ballet shoes have an adjustable drawstring, please tie the string in a double knot and cut off all excess at the base of the knot — this saves us a LOT of time in class by not having to re-tie shoes! Black tap shoes (patent leather velcro style preferred) will be worn for Tap Combos. Leather ballet or jazz shoes may be worn for Jazz Combos. Jazz shoes or clean sneakers may be worn for Hip Hop Combos.

Ballet: Dancers must wear a leotard, tights, and pink canvas or leather ballet shoes. Split sole ballet shoes are preferred. Ballet skirts or tight fitting “bike” shorts may be worn over tights. Ponytails are not allowed for Ballet Levels 1 and up; hair must be in a bun. All flyaways and bangs must be pinned back.

Jazz & Musical Theatre: Black jazz shoes, tight fitting shirt or leotard, tight fitting pants or shorts. Hair must be pulled back away from face. All flyaways and bangs must be pinned back.

Tap: Black tap shoes, tight fitting shirt or leotard, tight fitting pants or shorts. Patent leather tap shoes and heeled tap shoes are not allowed in Tap Basics/Level 1 and up. Hair must be pulled back away from face. All flyaways and bangs must be pinned back.
