Class Attire, Hair and Shoes
Proper attire will be enforced this year. Instructors cannot properly correct technique if baggy clothing is worn. For the best technical training and proper body alignment to prevent injuries clothing must be fitted. Correct attire also helps dancers to be in correct mind set for each class. For instance a corporate presentation would not be made wearing sweat pants, when a dancer looks the part they also feel confident and ready to learn. Students not following dress code will be given a warning and then be asked to sit and watch class if the problem persists.
