INFORMATION


DANCE SEASON:

Classes begin Monday, September 15th 2016 and end with our annual Recital in May.

 

STUDIO ATTIRE:

GIRLS: Tan, white or ballet pink tights must be worn AT ALL TIMES. Leotards, crop tops, hot pants or Capri pants may be worn but MUST BE form fitting. NO OVERSIZED T-SHIRTS, SWEATSHIRTS or BAGGY PANTS during class, except for Hip Hop. HAIR: should be pulled back away from your face and neck. Examples of this are ponytails, a dancer’s bun or braids. PROPER ATTIRE IS REQUIRED FOR ALL CLASSES. STUDIO warm ups are encouraged for all students and required for Dance Rage members.

 

BOYS: athletic pants or shorts, T-shirt or tank top.

 

PROPER SHOES FOR ALL CLASSES; PLEASE CHECK BEFORE BUYING OR WEARING. Each dance shoe is constructed to support the foot in the movement of that type of dance; therefore the correct shoe and fit are extremely important to the student’s progress. Each class uses a shoe based on their training and ability level. So please ask what shoe you will need.

 

DO NOT BUY SHOES until you know what you need. If you have them, GET YOUR TEACHERS APPROVAL before wearing. DO NOT BUY BLACK SHOES unless you are asked to. We will have the “PROPER” SHOES & DANCE APPAREL available at the studio at the end of August. We will also let you know where else you can purchase them.
