A dress code not only ensures a teacher can see and correct a dancer’s alignment and posture, but also teaches student’s discipline, which contributes to overall focus and energy. By “dressing the part,” dancers feel like dancers. Specific dress requirements shows respect for the work, while limiting distractions and creating unity among dancers, much like a school uniform policy. The dress code includes a list of teacher-recommended shoes. For best results, dancers should be in proper, well-fitted shoes, specified for each genre of dance. Please check with instructors before purchasing shoes, as groups are required to match for all performances.
