Dance Dress Code

Proper dress for dance is extremely important as teachers need to be able to see a dancer’s body in order to give corrections.  T-shirts, shorts and sweats are not acceptable for class attire but should be worn to and from the studio as cover-ups.  Any dancers not properly dressed for class may be asked to sit out and observe.   Dancewear may be purchased in our store at Aspire Academy of Expressive Arts.  Long hair should be worn off the neck, preferably in a bun and short hair should be pulled back from the face.
