Class Dress Code


Masks must be worn at all times by students, teachers, staff, and anyone entering Dream Studio for any purpose.

Personal Hygiene and Cleanliness

Dance, due to its physical nature, produces perspiration which requires all dancers to keep their bodies, dance clothes, and dance shoes clean and odor free as possible. Parents are encouraged to help their student/s maintain good personal hygiene habits, and provide frequent cleaning of all dance clothes and shoes.


Students in Grades 5 and up must wear their hair in a proper bun, including pulled up bangs, hair ties, hair pins, and hair net. Messy buns will not be permitted in class. Students in these classes will not be taking class if their hair is not in a proper bun.

Students in Grade 4 and younger should have their hair up. A proper bun is preferred, but we understand that younger students may be unable to put their hair in a proper bun by themselves, if a parent’s assistance is not available.

Students of all other dance techniques are also required to have their hair up, though not necessarily in a bun.

Students may wear capri length yoga pants, or close fitting shorts to the knee, with close fitted t-shirt. Hair longer than chin length must be worn up. Bare feet.
