DRESS CODE

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to our NEW dance year at Arizona Coast Performing Arts Dance Studio! We are looking forward to this opportunity to share our knowledge, and the joy of the art of dance. Our philosophy is to encourage each student's creativity and individuality while instilling a positive work ethic practicing responsibility, discipline, persistence and enthusiasm. We have a dress code for all classes and a basic ballet uniform for all levels. Dance attire will prepare the students mentally and physically for class and allow instructors to see body lines and posture to enable corrections. Please have the required attire by the first week of September for all dance classes. It is recommended that all dancers have a dance bag that holds all dance clothing, shoes, hair supplies and a water bottle. Since items may be left behind, please have labels with student's names or initials in all dance wear, shoes and water bottles.

 

Hair MUST be up and away from the dancer’s face in a neat ballet bun for all ballet classes. For all other classes, hair must be in a ponytail or braid which allows the eyes to have a clear view of others in the room, ensuring safety for all. Short hair must be kept off the face by a headband or barrettes. Distracting jewelry is not permitted in class. Students are asked to bring a water bottle to class, with ONLY water. No food or gum will be permitted in the dance room. To maintain respect for other dancers and instructors, all students are required to come to class on time and prepared for all classes. We greatly appreciate your cooperation and compliance. Please leave bags and street shoes in cubbies, you may bring your water bottle inside with you. With the exception of  pointe dancers bringing in their pointe shoe bag and Pre Ballet/Tap since they change shoes in class.
