Dress Code / Class Description

Dance clothing usually consists of a leotard, spandex, tights (Pink or Tan), leggings, form fitted shirt or tank, basketball shorts, harem pants, cheer shorts or any other attire that will allow the dancer to move freely and will allow the teachers to see the dancers movement so that they can correct the dancers technique properly. It is also VERY important that your dancers hair is always pulled up and out of their face (if they have bangs they need to be bobbie pinned back or have a head band holding them back secure enought that they will not fall in their face while dancing.) Also NO jewelery.
