Why do we have a dress code?
Instructors need to be able to see students’ arms, legs, hip and knee joints, and muscles to insure proper movements are being made, to prevent injury, and to give proper correction to form. Dance styles have different dress codes to bring out the best in that dance style. Instructors have permission to make changes to the dress code as they feel necessary through the year.
Dancers should also wear proper outside wear- (Jackets/Warmups/sweats) in colder months or to keep the body warm before they begin dance class.
2017/18 DRESS CODE:
SHOWSTARZ: Black leotard to rehearsal classes- proper shoes. Color will vary by routine.
Remember: You wouldn’t wear tights and a leotard to basketball practice,
please don’t wear basketball shorts and baggy t-shirts to ballet or jazz class.
