Student Handbook

 

Here you will find information you’ll need as a student at Everything Goes Dance Studio. Our front desk staff and faculty are always available to answer questions and help with issues like choosing the best classes, getting the proper dance attire and shoes, preparing for class and performances, and improving your dance skills.

 

To Enroll in Classes: Enrollment for our 2021-2022 Dance Season is currently closed. Feel free to check out our schedule to see what type of classes we typically offer, and be sure to check back by May of 2022 when our Summer 2022 enrollment opens. 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! If you’re registering for intermediate or advanced classes, please meet with the teacher to ensure that you’re enrolled at the proper level of study.

General Appearance

Dancewear should be clean, well maintained, and modest and the proper shoes 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 (tan or black are fine); fitted dance shorts or leggings are allowed. Hair should be pulled back in a neat ponytail or bun. Your dance 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.

 

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 (Mariachi Connection: Style A04). Ask the front desk or your instructor for more information.

 

Hip Hop & Breakdancing

Black sneakers (like Old Skool Classic Vans or similar shoes) used only for dance class (no black sole bottoms please) and 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.

 

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.).
