We can help you with your dancewear needs for class. Leading up to the start of classes we will be placing weekly orders of dance items. We will also have an online store available for families to purchase additional items at the start of the dance year. 

Dress Code Requirements: 

  • Hair: hair should be back away from face for all classes, and girls should have a bun (with hairpins) for ballet levels 1-7, Pre-Teen, Teen, and pointe.
