What to wear!


dancers

Students are required to understand and comply with the University dress code as stated in the catalog for all activities on campus. The spirit of the Honor Code encourages neatness, cleanliness, and modesty. In your dance class you are allowed to wear clothes that facilitate the movement required. Please wear comfortable clothes that will not restrict movement and are not too bulky or heavy.

It is NOT permissible to wear classroom dancewear outside of the dance area. It is also required for students to have the appropriate footwear. Any questions regarding appropriate shoes should be directed to the instructor. 

For specifics regarding each dance class see below.

Appropriate dancewear for Ballet Classes

Women: Pink canvas - split sole ballet shoes, round neck short sleeved or tank leotard in black, pink tights with the opening for footed and or footless wearing. Ladies must carefully consider their support bras so that the best possible line can be presented for esthetic concerns during classes. Dancers may cover up with any manner of sweatpants and tops or jazz pants and or knitwear legwarmers and sweater tops in any color of choice. We just need to be down to the leotard and tights layer so as to properly see the architecture of ballet as you perfect your practice.

Men: White canvas - split sole ballet shoes, white tee shirt worn out ok, black mens tights, black men's dance belt. The dance belt will provide you with proper carriage and esthetic body lines while in class and on stage. Your basketball athletic supporter is not firm enough and not does it give you handsome body lines. Dancers may cover up with any manner of sweatpants and tops or jazz pants and or knitwear legwarmers and sweater tops in any color of choice. We just need to be down to the leotard and tights layer so as to properly see the architecture of ballet as you perfect your practice.
