Attire for classes
It’s important for dancers to wear clothing that is comfortable to move in while still enabling them to see their body lines. Jazz pants or tights will protect the legs from sticking to the floor in floor work. In order to execute proper turns, dancers need to be able to see where they are going. Wearing a ponytail or bun (for those with long hair) gives your student the best opportunity to succeed in class.
 
Jazz and Tap
  • Leotard and tights
  • Shorts, skirts or jazz pants can be worn over leotard and tights
  • Tan jazz shoes; black tap shoes
  • Hair should be worn in a ponytail off the face or in a bun
 
Ballet
