DRESS CODE

It is necessary for students to adhere to wearing form fitting dancewear in order that their teachers can advise and correct body alignment and proper technique.  Oversized clothing not only makes it difficult for the teachers to see what corrections need to be made, but the student is also unable to determine whether or not they have correct form.  Non-conforming dance attire can also be a distraction to the dancers and their peers.  Please help us enforce this policy.
