STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A LEOTARD, TIGHTS AND HAIR PULLED BACK EVERY
All students MUST wear a leotard and
tights of any color to every class they are enrolled in, along with having
their hair pulled back in a bun or at the very least a ponytail. Boys will be
expected to wear athletic pants or shorts with a t-shirt and the appropriate
I strongly believe this is vital to a complete dance education. If your
child is appropriately dressed they are more apt to have a stronger sense of
dedication, commitment, and professionalism in their classes. It will also
enable me as an instructor to make sure your child is using the correct
muscles, body alignment, and posture which will help minimize the risk of
injury. Warm up clothing is acceptable over top of the leotard and tights for the
beginning of class until muscles are warm and awake. You may purchase leotards
and tights through the Dance Centre, please ask Miss Sam for information. I
would like to have everyone enforcing this rule by the month of October each new dance season. Failure to do so may result in your child
being asked to sit out. Occasional mishaps will be taken into consideration as
long as it’s not repetitive.
It is MANDATORY to order shoes through Miss Sam to ensure safety, uniformity and proper fittings.You will not be able to use shoes that do not follow the dress code for our annual recital!
