DRESS CODE

Footnotes is implementing a mandatory dress code beginning in the 2018-2019 dance season. Adhering to a dress code shoes your professionalism, respect for your art and readiness to participate in dance. Just like a baseball player wouldn't ever go onto the field without his uniform, a dancer wouldn't enter the class/rehearsal/stage without a leotard, tights, and hair in a bun.

Paid registration now includes the appropriate dance uniform for a class.

Long hair must be tied back in a pony tail for all classes and in a bun for all ballet classes or at the request of the instructor. We always have hair elastics in each studio if you forgot yours. Acro-Dance classes should wear their hair in braids or low ponytails.

Jeans, jean shorts, play clothes, dance costumes or school clothes are not suitable dance attire. Remember loose or dangling jewelry and costumes other than proper dance skirts are a safety hazard and distraction for dancers and are not allowed.

Help us keep the studio floors clean by not wearing dance shoes outside.

Footnotes has a variety of dance wear available for purchase at very competitive prices. We can fit shoes in the studio. Some items are in stock and others can be ordered. Items ordered during the August open house will arrive prior to classes beginning. We can order dance wear at any time during the dance year.
