Please make sure your child is dressed for class when they arrive.
Dancers should come dressed for class: Girls wear any color leotards, tights, and leather ballet shoes. NO extra ballet skirt or TUTU is allowed. Leather ballet shoes are available at Target. Long hair should be in a ponytail or braids. If it is difficult for you to provide ballet clothing, make sure girls wear stretchy shorts and a T-shirt. Boys wear shorts without pockets, T-shirt and black leather ballet shoes.
Children should wear JAZZ SHOES, T-shirts, sweat pants, stretch pants or shorts that come to mid-thigh. JEANS ARE NOT PERMITTED. Pants must not drag on the floor as this is dangerous.
Hip Hop for 5-7 year olds:
Children should wear gym shoes, T-shirts, sweat pants, leggings or shorts that come to mid-thigh. JEANS ARE NOT PERMITTED. Pants must not drag on the floor as this is dangerous.
Acting or Music
Children should wear clothes that let them move easily. Sweat pants, stretch pants, shorts that come to mid-thigh or loose-fitting pants are best. Girls should not wear dresses, skirts or short shorts because many exercises take place on the floor. Shoes with hard heels, boots or flip flops are NOT allowed. Gym shoes are recommended.
Clothing that children wear to school is acceptable as long as you realize paint spills (mostly washable) are a possibility. Care is taken by teachers to protect clothing, but accidents do happen even though we provide paint shirts.
