PERFORMANCE UNIFORM: All dancers will purchase a new uniform for use at all public performances (excluding recital), and the cost is included with monthly tuition.  Uniforms will be sized in October 2022 and distributed in November 2022.

DRESS CODE FOR CLASS & SHOES: For our weekly classes, we do not have a “uniform” but we ask that dancers dress like dancers. 

 

  • DRESS CODE FOR OUR GIRLS:

    • For Kinderdance, Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Pointe: dancers need to wear proper dance attire: leotards with tights, sports bra/crop top with leggings or jazz shorts. Items can be purchased online, consignment at the studio, or stores like Academy Sports, Target, etc.

    • T-shirts are allowed but must not be oversized!

    • Hoodies & Jackets are not allowed during class! If your child is cold-natured, consider purchasing long-sleeved leotards or have them wear long-sleeved shirts.

    • Tights (or Stockings) are mandatory with leotards, leotards w/ skirts, dance dresses, or jazz/biker shorts.  Tights are not required with Capri length or ankle-length leggings.  TIGHTS ARE NOT LEGGINGS, NO MATTER HOW OPAQUE THEY SEEM!!!! 

    • Panties should not be worn with dance attire, especially when wearing tights. Dance tights are like special “dance panties”. The “no panty” rule is enforced with recital costumes, exceptions only to those with medical reasons.

    • HAIR must be pulled up SECURELY into a ponytail, braid, or bun for class each week!. Re-doing hairstyles during class will not be tolerated!

  • DRESS CODE FOR OUR BOYS: For class, boys may wear any t-shirt with soccer-length shorts(preferably with boxer briefs worn underneath)- sweatpants or warm-up pants, and SOCKS. Denim and Linen pants/shorts are not allowed for classes.

**Pointe shoes will no longer be available through our studio.**

  • We stock all styles that are used and sell at a competitive price to outside vendors. 

  • We also sell consigned shoes, but availability is often extremely limited & quality cannot be guaranteed.

  • Dancers are greatly encouraged to have a bag that is SPECIFICALLY for their dance shoes. Swapping shoes between bags lead to losing them as does when they tote them in their school backpacks! Grocery bags are convenient but are not the most dependable!

  • We try to keep various Danceology bags available for purchase.  

 

REGISTRATION FEES: There is a one-time annual fee paid at registration of $20 per dancer.  This fee is non-refundable.

Memory Book Ads: Every dancer will have a ¼-page ad bundled as a part of recital fees. Our memory book has a dance photo of your dancer along with a special message or business card.  More ads can be purchased later for more photos in the book.  Each dance family receives one free book at recital, and more can be purchased ($10) at our performances

TRANSPORTATION SERVICES: We have a studio van that can provide pick-up and return for those needing assistance with transportation for classes to and from most local schools and daycares.  There is a monthly fee for transportation of $10 for pickup only and $15 for pickup & return.
