NO BAGGY OVERSHIRTS, PANTS, SHORTS OR COVERUPS. Dance skirts may be worn over leotards for older students in ballet and pointe classes.
Tights help with increased circulation, muscle tone, and prevent dance injuries. Dancers must wear tights at all times during class. If stirrup tights are worn, dancers need socks or another pair of tights. Leg warmers/ankle warmers are acceptable, except if specific instructor requests otherwise. Unitards are acceptable as leotard and tights. Jazz pants are acceptable for Jazz or Tap classes only, not for Ballet or Pointe Classes.

Tan or black low heel tap shoes (with buckle straps or ties) for younger students, black or tan high heel or black low oxford tap shoes for older students are acceptable. Black jazz shoes, full sole, split sole, or jazz boots are acceptable.
Pre-School – 3 & 4 year old students, Kindergarten, & Primary will need ballet and black tap shoes.

Pink only, shoes should fit snugly with toes near the end of slipper. Elastic should be attached between the area of the ankle and instep. Strings should be tied in a box knot and tucked neatly under the top of slipper. Alternating from right to left foot will prolong life of shoe.
