Dress Code and Participation

Dress Code

Pre-Ballet (ages 3-6), Primary (age 7) and Ballet students (ages 8 and up) must wear pink tights, ballet shoes and a leotard in the style and color of their grade level.

Pre-Jazz, Jazz and Lyrical/Modern students may wear tights, shoes and leotards in any style and solid color. All dancewear may be purchased at BoBo’s on Ingleside Avenue.

All students – all classes — hair must be bunned for pre-ballet, primary and ballet classes and out of the face for Jazz and Lyrical/Modern classes.

All students must wear a cover up to class to cover leotards and tights. It is extremely important that students are not entering and leaving the building in only leotards and tights.  All Dance Arts students will be given a t-shirt the first week of classes which can serve as a proper cover up provided it is long enough. Parents please insure that leotard and tights are completely covered.


Regular attendance is the most important factor in the progress of the individual student and the classes at a whole. Classes will begin promptly and students entering class late will not only disturb the class, but will miss an important part of the lesson. Parents should deliver and pick up their children within a ten-minute tolerance before and after class. For reasons of safety, no child will be allowed out of the building until her ride has come.


Parent Participation

All parents are invited to attend their child’s class/classes at the end of January. Parents of students primary age and older may visit the class with the teacher”s permission at any time. One parent from each class is also asked to serve as class mother. This is an important and necessary part of our program. We invite you to inquire about your child’s progress at any time during the year; and if you have any questions, or if problems arise, please let us know.
