DRESS CODE

It can be seen from the pictures above that a class following dress code makes it easier for the teacher to see and correct technique.​

The Dance & Fitness Studio requires a dress code for a few simple reasons.

1. Technique correction and Injury Prevention. Teachers can see how a dancer is holding their body, easily, when they are in the required dance clothes. Over rotation or forced rotation can be easily corrected if the teacher is able to see the mistake. Additionally, correct dance shoes won't be slippery or stick to our professional dance flooring. When all dancers are in the same gear, a teacher can easily spot a lifted hip, an under turned foot or an over rotated arm.

2. Cohesion. At The Dance & Fitness Studio, we think dancers learn best when they can concentrate on lessons and not what their fellow classmates are wearing. When the whole class is dressed similarly, they are a TEAM!

3. Our Recitals! The Dance & Fitness Studio traditionally presents a Christmas Recital each December and our Dress Code is often the basis for our costumes. Dancers can wear their base dancewear with an additional costume piece. Because we have this dress code, we do not need to order expensive costumes to make our dancers look great onstage for recital. We are able to provide costumes at no extra cost to you partially because of this dress code.
