Ballet:   Leotard with skirt, tights, and ballet shoes.  (Tights may not be worn alone without shoes because they are too slippery.)

Dance & Sing Musicals: Comfortable clothing that allows full range of body movement and jazz shoes.

Hip Hop / Jazz:  Comfortable clothing that allows full range of body movement.  Students may wear jazz shoes or clean, dance class only “tennis shoes” which are not worn outside or for normal everyday use.  (This keeps our dance floors clean and in good condition.) 

Modern:  Leotard and footless tights with shorts or a skirt OR a leotard with leggings; tank top over leotard (optional).  Bare feet are strongly encouraged to help students develop strong foot muscles. “Dance paws” are optional.

Tap:    Leotard with capris, shorts, or jazz pants; tank top or t-shirt over leotard (optional); and tap shoes.

Salsa:   Comfortable clothing that allows full range of body movement and dance shoes (or equivalent in slippery soled shoes).
