Dress Code

Abiding by the dress code is imperative for the safety of our dancers and their growth in dance.

There are no exceptions to the dress code.and failing to abide to the dress code will result in a warning, before a family meeting is scheduled. Absolutely nhoop earrings larger that .5 inch allowed. Necklaces must be able to be tucked into the leotard, otherwise will need to be removed.

No tulle tutus, crowns, plastic headbands. No crop tops permitted during weekly technique classes. 

Dance warmups may be worn until instructors ask them to be removed.
