DRESS CODE

Long hair must be tied back in a pony tail for all classes and in a bun for classical ballet or at the request of the instructor. We always have hair elastics in each studio if you forgot yours.

Jeans, jean sorts, play clothes, 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.
