What to Wear and Expect


  • We believe that modesty is commanded by God.  To learn technique, however, joints and muscles need to be visible to the teacher and student.  We strive to maintain a balance.

    • Ballet students need to wear black leotard, pink tights, and practice skirts.  Hair needs to be up in a bun, or close.  Ballet slippers are required - leather, canvas, or faux leather.

    • Tap dancers must wear tap shoes (Bloch & Capezio highly recommended). Students should wear comfortable clothes you can easily move in. 

    • Musical Theater dancers should wear jazz or ballet shoes or bare feet, and clothes that can move and stretch in comfortably.

    • Urban dancers should wear athletic shoes and pants that cover the knees.  Hair should be up, away from the face.

    • Lyrical dancers should wear any color tights, leotard, and ballet or lyrical shoes, then shorts over.

    • Princess Camp, wear pink tights and any color leotard and ballet skirt, and then leather, canvas, or faux leather ballet shoes.

    • Women's Worshipful Dance students need to wear ballet shoes, and clothes that can stretch and cover.  One might wear leotard with exercise pants and tank top over, or leotard and tights with a skirt.  Hair should be up.

    • Yoga students should wear clothing that easily moves with your body. Lightweight attire that is form-fitting and not too loose or baggy is best. You will want to be barefoot as well.  You will need a sticky yoga/workout mat. 

  • Please bring a labeled water bottle to all classes to keep hydrated.

  • Have dance clothes on and cover up coming in and out of the studio.

  • Parents are always welcome to watch, but are free to leave as well.

  • The teachers and students are working hard, so please keep noise to an absolute minimum, especially during younger classes.
