Dress Code Requirements

Clothing worn for class has an important influence on dancers' posture and focus. Teachers must be able to see the joints in order to correct anatomical alignment, aid in injury prevention, and promote correct dance technique. For these reasons, Principle Dance has a dress code specific to each class. Dancers dressed inappropriately may be denied class participation.

*Please note: NO TUTUS are permitted during class because they are a distraction for young dancers. Wearing a tutu is saved for the performance experience. Simple chiffon ballet skirts are permitted in some classes.*

Boys
Plain black/white t-shirt, black fitted athletic shorts/pants, and black dance shoes. Bare feet for Contemporary. (See Hip Hop note for exception.)
