Required Apparel

Why We Have Apparel Required for Class

A Dress Code adds uniformity and promotes teamwork and discipline in the classroom.   It helps each student present a neat appearance and shows they have respect for dance.  As with any sport that requires a uniform, our required apparel is selected to allow students and move freely, help instructors view their alignment properly, and have proper shoes to insure safety in all forms of dance.

Our studio store, Gotta Have It, is fully stocked with your required clothing and shoes.  Stop in and our knowledgeable, friendly staff will assist you in proper fitting of shoes and clothing.
