Dress Code

Adhering to correct dress code is part of the discipline and structure of a dance class. All dancers must adhere to the dress code at all times. Please label ALL shoes. Dancers should carry their shoes and belongings in a dance bag that is also labeled.

If you are buying locally, we recommend Dance Solutions in the World Gym Shopping Center on the corner of Phelan and Dowlen Rd.
