WHAT TO WEAR

Dress Code:

IMPORTANT! When you take ski lessons, you must wear a ski jacket and ski boots. If you join a soccer team, you must wear soccer shoes, shin pads and a soccer uniform. iF YOU TAKE DANCE LESSONS–YOU NEED TO WEAR ACTUAL DANCE CLOTHS AND DANCE SHOES. APPROPRIATE ATTIRE FOR EACH CLASS IS LISTED BELOW.

Beware - Walmart, Target and Kmart sell a bedroom slipper that looks a little like a ballet slipper – but it is NOT appropriate for class. Wearing this kind of slipper in dance class will increase the risk of injury.

ALL BALLET CLASSES UP THROUGH AGE 8
We sell the class kit for $35 it includes Revolution brand Pink short sleeve leotard, Revolution pink tights, and pink ballet slippers. No skirts, please.   (Young students have shown themselves to do much better in the disciplined world of ballet when they are dressed the same.) Hair must be off the neck and out of their face. Please – no underwear under the tights and leotards. (See important note above regarding ballet shoes.)

BALLET CLASSES AGE 9 AND OLDER
Solid colored leotard and tights, pink ballet slippers. Dance skirts are allowed. Hair must be off the neck.

MALE DANCE STUDENTS
Black stretch pants and white shirt for ballet. All other classes – stretchy/loose pants and t-shirt, with appropriate black shoes.*

TAP CLASSES
Loose comfortable clothing, and flat black tap shoes in good repair.

JAZZ CLASSES
A leotard of any color, jazz pants (preferably black), and black jazz shoes or boots.

HIP HOP, HIP HOP/JAZZ COMBO, and MUSICAL THEATER CLASSES
A leotard is preferred, but not required. If no leotard is worn, the shirt/top must be long enough to cover the midriff during all dance movements and stretching. Pants must be made of stretchy/knit fabric that allows for complete freedom of movement. Pants that ride below the hip bones will not be allowed. Ballet shoes are okay, but black Jazz or Hip Hop shoes (or boots) are preferred.*

CURTAIN CALL KIDS
We sell the class kit for $67 it includes Revolution brand Black tank leo, black jazz pants, black jazz boots.  Two kinds of shoes are required. First, jazz shoes*… second, tap shoes. The studio has some loaners for children who don't want to buy the tap shoes right away.  This should be worn with Tan tights.

ACTING, SINGING, & ART CLASSES
Everyday clothing that is modest. Street shoes must be removed at door. Sox or clean bare feet are fine.

MALE DANCE STUDENTS
Black stretch pants and white shirt for ballet. All other classes – stretchy/loose pants and t-shirt, with appropriate black shoes for each class.

*You need to wear clean tennis shoes, used only in side.  Make sure they fit securely. Then wash them well, and they will work until you can purchase jazz or hip hop shoes.

We encourage all our female dance students to wear dance leotards in every class. One important reason is that they keep your midriff covered. This is especially true during stretching and the more athletic choreography expected in intermediate and advanced classes. Necklines on leotards and tops should also be modest. Any students whose clothing is too revealing will be given a large t-shirt to wear during class. Jeans do not generally work for dance class. They do not allow for complete freedom of movement. Pants worn for dancing should be made of a stretchy/knit fabric. T-shirts should not have any language or images that are obscene or vulgar, or related to drugs or alcohol.
