MDS Dress Code
Coming to class properly dressed is a part of the discipline associated with taking dance classes. It is extremely important for a dancer to be able to move without the distractions of baggy clothing or loose hair. Please do not wear dance shoes outside! Label all shoes and bags with the dancer's name. Failure to wear required dancewear will result in a verbal warning to the student, then a parent email at the second encounter, and finally the student being asked to sit out of class at a third encounter,
Tiny Toes: Any type of dance clothes (leotards, dresses, shorts, and form-fitting t-shirts), hair up in a ponytail/pulled back from the face.
Contemporary and Jazz: Leotard, tights, shorts, leggings, pirouette shoes, or jazz shoes (depending on the class/instructor's preference).
tennis shoes, street clothes (sweats are okay), no bra tops, hair out of the face in a ponytail.
Acro: Any leotard, optional shorts, and tights that roll up. Bare feet. Hair must be pulled back in a mid-bun. For the safety of the dancer, if baggy clothes that go over the head are worn, they will not be allowed to participate in class.
Ballet: Leotard, any tights, shorts, leggings, skirts, ballet shoes, hair in a bun.
Tap: tap shoes, street clothes (sweats are okay), no bra tops, hair out of the face in a ponytail.
