Q: Why does my child have to conform to a specific dance dress code?
For proper dance education, it is important that all students dress in the appropriate attire for each specific class. Ballet in particular involves very detailed body movements and placement. Having all students dressed to a standard makes it possible for the instructor to more easily notice incorrect positions and movements to make the appropriate corrections before any "bad habits" are formed.

Most Combo 1, Combo 2, Level 1 and Level 2 also have a teacher's assistant each week. All other recital and technique classes are limited to 14-16 students per class.
