For colder months, form-fitting, dance appropriate warm-up gear is acceptable (i.e. leg warmers, shrugs, sweaters, sweater wraps, warm-up pants, etc.). We ask that you do not wear trendy-style clothing that have words, phrases or images.  So when in doubt, solid colors and form fitting attire are the way to go!

As a general rule, we do not ask families to purchase costumes for our annual Holiday Recital.  We do however, ask that parents purchase their dancers costume for the Spring Recital.  We aim to keep the price of these costumes as low as possible, and we try to include costume pieces that can be worn for classes in the future.
