Yumiko, Mariia, and bordered leotards are allowed, floral mesh on the back and sleeves is permitted. No split bikini or swimsuit style leotards. Show no skin on the waist and belly. Your partner needs to be able to slide his hands along your waist without a finger catching. Halters should not be too low- make sure all neck clasps are secure. You will be required to wear a uniform leotard for recitals, so expect to order one for the winter and spring shows.

Beginning Pointe Technique Proper leotard color for your level Ballet IV-VIII, convertible pink tights, dish towel, blue theraband.

Teen & Adult Ballet Leotard and tights preferred, but you may wear comfy clothes for this: Leggings or fitted yoga pants (no flair) and a T- shirt are appropriate, as long as it is not restrictive. If you are wearing a shirt instead of a leotard, please wear an appropriate sports bra. Canvas or leather ballet flats- canvas is recommended: they are more comfortable, not as expensive, and less resistant to the floors, but if you buy leather they will work just fine.

Modern & Contemporary Leotard, you have the option of tights, leggings, or shorts. You may wear a t-shirt or tank top with a sports bra. No crop tops or bras without full coverage. Bring socks or foot undies if you prefer those to barefoot.

General Class Dress Code This is for non-ballet workshops, featured Pilates and Zumba master classes, etc.

If you raise your hands, other class participants should NOT see your belly button. If you touch your toes, we should NOT see your bottom. NO overly baggy shirts or pants that will restrict movement are permissible. You should be able to do a snow angel, split, lunge, and jump without complaining. Wear clothes you can move in. Logos and words permissible, unless offensive or profane. Absolutely NO denim and no hoodies acceptable. Cover any chest cleavage with an appropriate shirt. A bra does not qualify as a top.

If a student is dressed inappropriately, the student will not be allowed to participate in class.
