Dance attire

We are passionate about teaching the art of dance and encouraging our students to work toward being their personal best on and off the dance floor. Our dance classes are structured around discipline, integrity, respect and professionalism to maintain a high standard in technique, style and performance.

Proper dance attire enables the teacher to see the dancers’ positions and movement in order to give necessary corrections for the benefit of the dancer’s education. Uniformity helps the teacher observe correct positioning more easily. If everyone is wearing the same thing, teacher is able to notice a hip too high, an elbow in the wrong spot, a wrist dropped, etc because the eye isn’t distracted by different attire. In keeping with our philosophy of encouraging creativity and enhancing self-esteem, we want to keep our dress code as open as possible while still maintaining a high standard with especially allowing the teachers to be able to correct as easily as possible.
