Why is there a dress code?

  • The simple uniforms make it possible for faculty to see the students' bodies so they can make the appropriate corrections.

  • Learning to work together and work as a team is accomplished more easily with the removal of distraction caused by different attire.

  • Young dancers are often distracted by their own dance attire.  Tutus and colorful leotards can become the focus, rather than the instructor.

  • Choreography is much easier for faculty when dancers are similarly dressed.

 

*** Underwear should not be worn with leotard and tights.  

Tights serve the same purpose and are much more comfortable when dancing. ***
