Class Attire

Specific class attire for children and adults is detailed below, but in general we prefer solid color leotards and white or black

t-shirts for boys for all children's classes. For our more advanced levels and adult classes, any solid color leotards or solid color t-shirts are acceptable.

 

For colder climates, form-fitting, dance appropriate warm-up gear is acceptable (i.e. legwarmers, 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!

We do not ask our families to purchase costumes for our annual school recitals, so there are no added costs.  The students' classroom attire is used for recitals.
