Our dance class dress code provides guidance and requirements for class attire and dance shoes. Please refer to each dance class’s dress code in the chart below. You can shop our store for a convenient way to purchase approved attire, however, it is not required to purchase dance attire and shoes exclusively in our store. We recommend that you discuss with your dance instructor before purchasing specific items, such as dance shoes, to ensure you are buying the proper shoes or attire.
