Wondering what to wear to your dance class? What a dancer wears to class can make a huge difference in how much they benefit from the class. It allows the dancer to move freely without restrictive clothing or the hair in the face, and it also helps the teacher see the alignment and placement of the body to help in preventing injury; it ensures proper technique is being used. Listed below are what we expect the dancers to wear to class.
Combo Bodysuit & tights. Shorts and skirts are allowed.
