NO baggy pants, jeans, t-shirts, shorts, etc., it is important that we see the alignment of the body to be sure the children are doing things safely and correctly. Baggy pants and tops CAN be worn for hip hop ONLY. Students in a ballet technique class must be in a black leotard and pink tights with hair secured back in a CLEAN bun.
For your dancers safety, please keep hair pulled back away from their face, either in a pony tail, bun or braid. No dangling earrings or large jewelry. Please label your dancers shoes and have them bring them all into the classroom in their bag. Water bottles are allowed in the classroom but please keep them in your bag unless changing shoes or the teachers has given permission to go get a drink. There are no water fountains available at the studio. Bottled water is available at the front desk for $1.
