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 and Spring Recitals.  We have however, on occasion, asked that families purchase a specific, inexpensive, costume piece (special leotard or skirt) to be worn for a recital.  Any skirt or leotard that we ask you to purchase for a recital may be worn for classes following the recital.
