Principle Dance 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.

 

Uniforms are listed below. The following links to Discount Dance and Curtain Call for Class allow you to purchase items at a discount.
