The Dress code, attire and hair, is designed to allow the dancer ease of movement without distraction. It also provides a clean unobstructed view of the dancers body, which allows the teacher the ability to observe the dancers line, posture, alignment and technique. Following the dress code is part of the structure of dance class and builds on other skills obtained through dance such as self-discipline, responsibility, determination and self-respect. Leotards, leggings, shorts & tops are all to be purchased through FDC. Tights & shoes may be purchased at your favorite dance store.
BALLET All Ballet students are to wear their proper leotard and tights uniform and their hair off the face & neck in a secure bun. Leotards are to be purchased from the office.
Hair: Please use hair elastic, hairpins / bobby pins, a hairnet and hairspray / gel. Students will not be allowed in class without the hair properly secured. If a student consistently comes to class without the proper hair supplies, a hair kit will be provided and the parent account will be charged $10.
