DRESSCODE

We do bring a dancewear store down from Edmonton in the fall, and Sylvestre’s Source for sports carries a lot of our dance wear (especially tights and bodysuits).

Proper Dancewear is essential for all dancers as it allows the teachers to see the proper alignment of students, and helps the students to feel and look prepared for class. It also helps to maintain a clean, uniform look in the classroom, as well as equalizes all students in the classroom.

All dancers (except hip hop) need a neat bun with a hairnet and pins, flyaways pinned or sprayed down. Hip hop students may have a ponytail.
