**Please note this is a GUIDELINE on what to purchase for your dancer. It is not mandatory for everyday classes. This is suggested attire for recitals, exams, and performances, as we encourage dancers to express themselves and their individuality in our classes. As long as the attire is dance appropriate and does not prohibit the dancer from moving properly, we prefer them to be comfortable and excited to dance, rather than be worried about their appearance:) Tactile issues or religious beliefs, will not hold any dancer back! Wear what suits you and your dancing style best.
