Dance Etiquette

Students should plan to be on time and dressed in the proper dance attire. If the dancer is going to be absent or arriving late please call the studio at 622-7879. Please keep in mind that regular attendance is essential to maintain or advance at any level of dance.

If your dancer is injured, we encourage them to come to class and observe the lesson.

There is no chewing gum allowed in any of the dance studios. All food or drink must be consumed in the lobby or change room, as only water is permitted in class.

Disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated. The use of profanity or ridiculing of other students will result in the student being asked to leave the class.

dress code

Pre/Primary Ballet:
Dancers are to wear a pink body suit with white ankle socks or tights, and pink ballet slippers. Hair should be in a bun and off the face.

Dancers are required to wear black body suit with pink tights. Hair should be in a bun and off the face. Pink ballet slippers are required (split sole for the older dancer).

Tap, Jazz, and Lyrical:
The dancer should have fitted dance wear. Sweatpants, oversized t-shirts and sweatshirts are not allowed. Dance pants must not drag on the floor (a capri or crop length is the most suitable for dance). Proper footwear is also a must. Hair must be off the face and secured in a elastic.

Younger dancers should wear patent tap shoes fastened with an elastic if there is no buckle. Older dancers must have a black leather shoe in the oxford style.

Jazz students must have a pair of black jazz shoes. Though some students work in bare feet or foot thongs, everyone should have a pair of shoes. Socks are not allowed in class.

Students taking lyrical should have a pair of foot thongs. There are many varieties out there, so you may want to check with the teacher.
