Dress Code

Proper Dress code minimizes distractions in class and allows the instructor to see students’ body alignment clearly to make appropriate corrections to their technique. If the instructor has difficulty seeing what is going on with a dancers’ body, they are unable to help the student to dance safely and to their fullest potential. 

Dance is a discipline, and students must arrive to class ready to work! (And have fun ☺)
