As a pre-professional program, the staff is aided by the dress code in their dedication to the development and training of dancers.  Please refrain from wearing  body lotion or heavily scented perfume.  All footwear must be approved by instructors before wearing to class.  Ballet shoes should fit according to the ballet teacher’s guidelines.  Ballet shoes that are too big will not be allowed.  Do not wear dance shoes outside of the dance studio.
