Dance Dress Code

All students are required to wear appropriate, specified dance attire at all times. Each level has a specified uniform leotard for girls and each class style has a full specified dress code for girls and boys.

Class attire is not included in registration or costume fees and can be ordered by emailing Siân Morris, Costume Coordinator, Dance.

2016/2017 Leotards may be worn until dancers outgrow them.

Early Learning Creative Dance classes (Ages 2 to 6) do not have a set dress code. Dancers are encouraged to wear clothing in which they can move comfortably!
