Dress Code

  • New this year -  you can shop online for all of your back-to-dance supplies and have your items delivered to your home!  My Studio Stuff is a great new system where our full dress code is laid out for you with quick links to purchase the supplies needed for classes. 

Students must come to class in the proper attire. Failure to do so will result in a notice to the parents, and if it continues to occur that dancer will be asked to sit out until the proper attire is worn. Hair must be up for all classes, as well as no gum, jewelry or bare legs. All required items are available through the Studio Store and My Studio Stuff.  Please see the following guidelines:
