To Enroll in Classes: Check out our schedule and fees. Next, phone the studio (525.1000) and set a time to meet with the staff, observe a class (if desired) and take a look around. After you’ve chosen your classes, filled out the forms and paid the fees, you’re in!

General Appearance

Dancewear should be clean, well maintained, and modest. The proper shoes and hairstyle should be worn for each class. Please do not wear jewelry to class. Do not wear panties underneath leotards. NO GUM! Instructors reserve the right to dismiss a student from class if they are not dressed and prepared properly.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Creative Movement

Pink tights, pink leotard, pink ballet shoes. Ballet skirts may be worn, but must be attached to leotard. Hair should be pulled back in a neat ballet bun and ballet shoelaces should be tied in a knot, trimmed, and tucked into shoes. No water bottles are allowed in Pre-K classes to avoid unnecessary potty breaks.

 

Ballet & Pointe

Pink tights, black leotard, pink split sole ballet shoes, hair in a neat ballet bun. No ballet skirts or extra clothing. Pointe shoes should only be purchased with instructor permission.

 

Tap

Wear comfortable clothing that allows free movement (shorts are fine) and black tap shoes with flat heels (1-2 inch). Hair should be pulled back away from the face. Tap shoes need to be purchased from a dance boutique. Tap shoes should never be worn outdoors to avoid ruining the sound the metal taps make! On a budget? Stop by our front desk to see if we have your size in our collection of gently used tap shoes for sale!

 

Jazz

Skin-Colored footed tights, black leotard, slip-on jazz shoes (skin-colored jazz shoes are preferred); fitted dance shorts or leggings are allowed. Hair should be pulled back in a neat ponytail or bun.

 

Modern

Skin-Colored footless tights, leotard, bare feet. Dance shorts or leggings are allowed. Knees should always be covered and hair should be pulled back in a neat ponytail or bun.

 

Flamenco

Flamenco practice skirt. Tights or socks, leotard, black flamenco shoes with nails. Hair should be pulled back in a neat ponytail or bun. Consult your instructor or the front desk for the best places to purchase these specialty items and shoes, as well as where to purchase your Recital costume.

 

Mexican Folkloric

Folkloric practice skirt, Skin-Colored footed tights, black leotard, and Mexican folkloric shoes with nails. Hair should be pulled back in a neat Folklorico-Style bun with Tocado, pinned in with lots of bobby pins. Your instructor may require a certain shoe color for end-of-year recital, but will let you know by December, to allow you plenty of time to purchase. Recital costumes can be purchased or rented, both through EGD. All female students will be required to provide their own bloomers and traditional gold folklorico earrings. Ask the front desk or your instructor for more information.

 

Hip Hop & Breakdancing

Clean sneakers should be worn for class, no black soles, please. Clothing allows free movement (joggers, sweatpants, leggings, etc.). NO DENIM PANTS, DRESSES, SKIRTS OR “SHORT” SHORTS. Covered knees are recommended for Breakdancing floor work. Hair should be pulled back away from the face. Your instructor may require a specific color of shoe for performance, but we will let you know at least a month prior to allow time for purchase.

 

Scottish Highland

Knee Socks, no shoes or optional split sole ballet shoes, dance shorts, leotard or fitted top. Knees must be visible at all times. Hair should be pulled back away from the face.

 

Acro Dance

Leotard worn with leggings or dance shorts, bare feet. Clothing should be form-fitting so that student may comfortably go upside down without worrying about clothing. Hair should be pulled up in a mid or low-level bun.

 

Males

Black jumpsuit or plain white or black t-shirt with black dance pants, and black dance shoes appropriate for class (ballet, jazz, tap, etc.).
