Students are required to wear dance attire for all classes. This is important for teaching purposes in order to see body lines and body placement. Hair should be pulled back, completely out of the students face. No street shoes are allowed in the dance studio. Each class has specific requirements. Please see below for additional information.

For information about the shoes required for each dance style, please view our shoe guide to the right.
