Young at Arts Intensive Dance Attire

 

Part of being an accomplished dancer is learning to be well groomed.  At competition and exams, part of your mark is on grooming and appearance.  The traditional attire is about professionalism and respect with regards to the art of dance. Proper dance etiquette includes wearing tights to ANY style of dance class. Tights are also worn for modesty and because they protect legs from scratches and floor burn.

When you come to class, please make sure that your hair and attire are suited to that class’ dress code (see below).  Also, prior to class, remove all watches, rings, necklaces, etc.  It is not acceptable for dancers to be styling their hair once they are in the classroom.  All dancewear required for classes may be ordered from the studio office.
 

All dancewear required for classes may be purchased at the studio office.
