FAQ: What should I wear?
A. Students attending a trial class should plan to wear dance attire. Typical dance attire includes a leotard, tights, appropriate shoes (ballet shoes, tap shoes, etc.) and hair pulled back in a tight bun. You can read more about our uniform requirements in the Handbooks for each division, but uniform attire is not required for new/visiting students.
