What to Wear to Dance Class

What to Wear to Dance Class

At Studio 360, our student’s dance education is very important to us. That’s why we have a dress code policy for all of our dancers. It’s important that students abide by this dress code as it sets an attitude of attentiveness and respect for other students, teachers and the art of dance. Dressing appropriately for class says that students are ready and willing to learn and work hard. It’s also vital that teachers be able to see the dancer’s body outline clearly in order to make proper corrections on posture, alignment, etc. 

Important things for everyone to bring

  • Water bottle: If every you forget yours, don’t worry! We sell water bottles at the studio for $1. 
  • Hair elastic: It’s very important that all students have their hair tied back in a ponytail or a bun. It avoids distractions but also can prevent harmful accidents (especially when doing tricks).
