Dress Code

Where to find dance clothes/shoes:

 

The studio has a Swap Box in the Rehearsal Room (during studio hours it is available at the Registration Desk).
Kid’s leotards, tights and dance shoes can be found at Walmart, Target, Kohl’s and Payless Shoe Source. The most complete dance supply stores in our area are Capezio, located at 3839 H Street in downtown Sacramento and Benicia Dancewear located at 250 Palladio Parkway, Suite 1309 in Folsom.
We recommend buying your first pair of shoes in person, but after the initial purchase we highly recommend Discount Dance, an online dancewear distributor. If you order from their website and enter
TP40704 the studio will receive money back from your purchase and you will get 10% off your first order.

Kids Classes (Tap/Jazz, Ballet/Jazz, Pre-Ballet):
Girls: one piece dancewear (leotard, dance dress, shorttard/unitard), skirts okay, no separates, appropriate dance shoes to class. Tights required for most 5-7 classes. Please check with your instructor.
Boys: Dance pants, t-shirt, black or white ballet shoes.

 

 

Ballet (ages 17 and under)*:
Girls: tights, leotard, pink ballet shoes and hair in a bun. Skirts and tight fitting pants or shorts are permitted.
Boys: Dance pants, t-shirt, black or white ballet shoes.

 

 

Jazz/Tap/Contemporary (ages 17 and under)*:
Girls: leotard or unitard, tight pants or shorts, jazz or tap shoes, hair up. A t-shirt or thick strap tank top over a leotard or unitard is permitted for tap classes.
Boys: T-shirt, pants or shorts, black jazz (tennis shoes for hip hop) or tap shoes.
Zumba: Workout clothes are the best clothes to wear to allow freedom of movement. Please be sure to bring a water bottle, towel and perhaps a change of clothes. It is easy to burn at least 500 calories in one class. The best shoes to wear are dance fitness shoes (not necessarily dance sneakers which give little arch support), court shoes or “aerobic” shoes. Wear shoes that do not have a lot of tread at the bottom, that are meant for medial/lateral/twisting motion and have some cushioning. Running shoes and cross training shoes are not recommended as they only allow forward motion.
*It is preferred that adults stay within the dress code, but are invited to wear what is comfortable for them to move in.
