Class Dress Code
Dressing appropriately for class is very important! Girls should wear a leotard to class (no skirts attached). In cold weather, sweatpants or leggings can be worn over a leotard. Boys should wear cotton shorts and a tight T-shirt or compression shirt. In cold weather, sweatpants and sweatshirts are appropriate allowed. It is wise to layer warm clothes over cool clothes because children are likely to get warm once they start class and may discard the warm layers. Leotards and other general apparel are available in our Pro-Shop during office hours. No gum, jewelry (stud earrings that cannot stand on their own are ok) or zippers/buckles/snaps/buttons, etc, no socks or footed tights
