What to wear

We do not enforce a dress code, but recommend wearing ballet slippers and clothing that allows for movement and is not too baggy, which should allow our instructor to see your lines. Classes may also be taken barefoot or in jazz shoes. Experienced dancers may wear pointe shoes, once given instructor approval.
