Dance students must wear masks at all times, and masks should fit securely above the nose. We recommend KN95 masks specifically made for kids.
Additionally, students may wear any clothing that is appropriate for dancing. Below are our recommendations.
For BALLET classes:
GIRLS: Leotard with pink tights (footless tights are better for the younger dancers who often take off their Ballet shoes during class)
BOYS: T shirt with shorts or sweatpants
Bare feet or Ballet shoes made of leather or canvas. Please tie Ballet shoestrings in a knot and cut off the excess string.
For ALL THAT JAZZ & BALLET: Ballet shoes made of leather or canvas (Jazz shoes are optional). Please tie Ballet shoestrings in a knot and cut off the excess string. Same attire as BALLET.
