Dress Code

IMG_8945All students are to be properly attired for their class.   Street shoes, sandals, sneakers, T-shirts, sweatshirts, jeans, pajamas or skirts will not be permitted in class at any time.  There will be no gum chewing, eating or drinking in dance rooms.  No jewelry is to be worn, as we will not be responsible for it’s damage or loss.  Unless a student has short hair that cannot be pulled up, all students must wear their hair properly pinned up.  Hair that is long and hanging is very distracting and uncomfortable, nonetheless dangerous to the dancer.  All ballet, lyrical and modern students must wear their hair in a bun.  Any child who repeatedly comes to class not properly attired, will not be permitted into class. There will be no refund, credit or make-up class for any lessons missed because of repeated dress code violations.  There is to be no writing on dance shorts or dance pants except the Dance Elektra logo. All Shoes will need to be the same brand and style for the recital so please make sure you find out which brand and style your child needs if it is not listed below before you buy them.
