Why have a dress code?This is a question asked by many people. A dress code keeps things more organized. When you are teaching a number and you see a variety of different colours, it is very hard on the eyes. In addition and more importantly, it is quite difficult to make corrections on certain bodylines when children come in wearing baggy clothes. It gives more of a unison and overall look.
For new students, please bear in mind that if your child is undecided about dance, feel free to wear running shoes for the first few classes until your child is comfortable and committed.
What to wear
As it is easier to learn in a professional environment, The Dance Zone Inc. students must be dressed properly.
The details are as follows:
Bodysuit : any style black only, for Tiny Tots pink is acceptable too

PLEASE NOTE For the competitive team you will be allowed 2 weeks to purchase your proper attire. If you do not have your proper attire by the 3rd week of class you will be asked to stand for the entire class. This will count as one class missed. Ballet class is one of the most important classes to take, if classes are missed on a regular basis other numbers will be taken away.
