What To Wear To Class



 

Because proper dance technique is our main focus during dance class,
we ask that NO one wear T-SHIRTS, SWEATSHIRTS, TENNIS SHOES, SWEATPANTS, JAZZ PANTS, OR SHORTS (with exception to Hip-Hop attire
and the Dance Shorts & Ankle Pants listed below) in class. Dancers will be
asked to remove any of the items listed above if worn to class.
