DRESS CODE (Rules/Information)

ANY VIOLATION OF THE DRESS CODE WILL RESULT IN THE STUDENT BEING ASKED TO SIT OUT OF CLASS AND WILL ALSO RESULT IN AN ABSENCE FOR THAT CLASS.


In order to feel like a dancer, you must dress like one!  For example: a student would not go to soccer or band practice with tap shoes and a leotard on, students should not come to their dance classes dressed inappropriately.


APPROPRIATE DANCE ATTIRE FOR EACH CLASS

Parents, please help us to reinforce these rules by making sure your child arrives to class prepared! 


 All female students are required to wear leotard and tights for all dance classes. All male students are required to wear black jazz pants and fitted shirt for all dance classes. Accessory dance wear can be worn in all classes other than ballet and acrobatics.


CAMI’S, TANK TOPS AND T-SHIRTS are PROHIBITED in Ballet and Acrobatics Classes


All hair is expected to be pulled back neatly, preferably in a bun and/or ponytail. A wide headband may be used to secure the hair off of the face for all classes. Keep ponytail holders in your child’s dance bag so that hair will never be an issue for your dancer. 


 All female and male students are required to purchase an official GDFAC uniform. All required dance shoes must be purchased through the dance store to ensure that each student has the specific brand/style/color of shoe that we require. We have a dance store inside of our facility with all our required shoes and dancewear.


We do offer a wide variety of dance wear and accessories available for purchase or order.


Each student must wear their GDFAC uniform during any Parent Observation week, and any performances in the community. The students may wear any color Gotta Dance Fine Arts Center t-shirt prior to and after all performances. The uniform ensures that EVERY student has the proper class attire and promotes unity at the center. The student must also wear tan tights during these performances; the tights must be purchased from the store.


Female students should not wear underwear with their uniform for performances. Undergarments that must be worn should be nude in color or have clear straps. Black sports bras are permissible. Male students should wear the proper undergarments under their uniform for all performances.


NO HOOP OR DANGLING EARRINGS of any kind are allowed in any classes. This can be VERY DANGEROUS! If a student arrives to class with earrings, they will be asked to remove them to participate in the class safely.
