Appropriate uniform minimizes distractions in class, and allows the instructor to see the students’ bodies clearly to make appropriate corrections to their technique. If the instructor has difficulty seeing what is going on with a student’s body, they are unable to help the student to dance safely and to their fullest potential.
For short term programs, students can wear comfortable clothing (no jeans) and indoor footwear or dance shoes if they have them. We ask them to wear tighter fitting clothes that are easy to move in.
There is a dress code at our dance school for full year programs which allows the teacher to properly correct a dancer’s alignment and technique enabling the student to take full advantage of the class. The same foot wear ensures that the children are wearing proper dance shoes and is effective for costuming purposes.
