Class Attire

Proper Attire is a tool to create a better dancer.

It is respectful to instructors, as it demonstrates that students care about the class they are in, and that they are focused and ready to work. It allows instructors to see if the body is being held in proper anatomical alignment, if the right muscles are being engaged, and to give more precise, beneficial and more meaningful corrections. In turn, the dancer can see the adjustments as they make them, dance stronger, healthier and prevent repetitive injuries caused by incorrect placement.

Females – All dancers should have hair secured from face. All ballet dancers should wear a bun if possible. This allows instructor and dancer to see the line created by the shoulder, neck, arms and back, and to focus on technique without hair distraction.
