EDC DRESS CODE & CLASS REQUIREMENTS
Wearing appropriate dancewear and shoes in class is very important. It allows the dancer freedom of movement and provides the instructor with "line of sight". This allows the instructor to see the body alignment clearly, allowing feedback and corrections for proper placement, helping the dancer to grow and improve. NO EXTENSIVE JEWELRY ALLOWED IN ANY CLASSES.
JAZZ, LYRICAL, CONTEMPORARY: Fitted dance wear must be worn. No street clothes allowed. Jazz or Character shoes recommended but not mandatory.
TAP: Fitted dance wear must be worn. No street clothes allowed. Tap shoes must be worn.
HIP HOP: Loose fitting street clothes are acceptable as long as the instructor can see your feet. Clean tennis shoes used specifically for class and not for every day use or jazz shoes should be worn.
BABY TOTS, TINY TOTS and TAP/BALLET COMBO: Any dancewear is acceptable for these classes with ballet and tap shoes required.
BEGINNING OR LEVEL BALLET: Please refer to chart below for dress code.
BALLET: Girls are required to wear a black leotard. Pink tights and pink ballet/pointe shoes are required for all ballet classes. Hair should be worn in a tight bun with a net and no wispies.
