Shoes and Attire

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:

Girls

Bodysuit : any style black only, for Tiny Tots pink is acceptable too

Crop tops : any style black only

Leggings : tight fit ( no flares ) will enable us to see feet and ankles more clearly

black only

Tights : beige, pink or black in stirrup or footed. (For Little Steps Jazz stirrup tights are required).

Boys

Pants : black pants or black shorts

Tops : white or black tank top

COMPETITIVE TEAM

Girls Ballet: black body suit, any style & pink convertible tights

All other classes: black crop top or fitted tank tops & black shorts **No socks allowed

(only senior companies are allowed to wear crop tops & shorts in colour)

Boys: black shorts & black or white tank tops only

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.

PLEASE NOTE NO cover ups, shorts, sweatpants, sweatshirts or baggy t-shirts are allowed.

Hair must be tied back securely. Use a proper hair elastic.

Jewellery is NOT allowed including watches except for stud earrings.

The Dance Zone Inc. is NOT responsible for lost or stolen articles. Please put your name on all articles of clothing, especially dance shoes and dance bags.

Please leave all jewellery at home. We advise you not to leave valuables of any kind in the change room.
