Class Attire

  • 2015 Connectivity Dance PhotosDance builds a sense of pride as well as habits of self-discipline. Approach each class as if you were performing on stage.
  •  Hair pulled back out of your face into a BUN for BALLET & JAZZ.  Ponytails or braids are acceptable for all other classes.
  • No watches or jewellery (small stud earrings are acceptable for class only, not for performances)
  • Proper attire enables dancers to achieve the full range of movement and motion unique to their bodies.  Appropriate attire allows the instructor to observe proper technique, body movements, muscle use and alignment.
  • Dress codes build a team atmosphere within the class and reduces competition between dancers within a class.  Having all dancers in a uniformed look lessens any visual distractions for the instructor / choreographer.
  • Fitted dance sweaters or wraps are acceptable to begin class until the body is warm.  NO jeans or pants, loose fitting t-shirts, bulky sweaters or baggy pants. It is at the discretion of the instructor whether or not to permit a child to dance without proper dance wear.  To avoid any disappointment, please arrive prepared to dance in proper attire.
  • Water bottles highly are encouraged, with plain water, no colored sweeteners, sports drinks or juice. Gum, food, and candy are not allowed during class time. 
  • Please label all water bottles and attire. The Lost and Found is located on the stairs in the studio lobby.
  • ***Competitive Dancers*** Please wear MONDOR brand tights for competition.
