2021-2022 Dance Class Dress Code

A dress code ensures that a teacher will be able to see a dancer’s alignment and positioning.  A dress code will also teach students discipline, helping with overall focus and energy. By "dressing the part," dancers feel like dancers. Dress codes can also create unity among the dancers instead of causing a few dancers to stand out, much like a school uniform policy. Dress codes go a long way in minimizing distractions, and help give classes a unified look.
