Dance Etiquette

  • 1. A dancer must arrive at class on time. BALLET / JAZZ students: If later than 20 min., the dancer will sit and watch the class. The first 20 min. is crucial warm up time. Warm muscles help prevent injuries. COMBO CLASS students: If late to class, please put dance shoes on prior to entering the classroom.
  • 2. NO TALKING DURING CLASS! Talking means that you are not hearing what the teacher is saying. Listening carefully and paying close attention is a critical part of the learning experience.
  • 3. RESPECT for your teacher and fellow classmates is the number one lesson in dance class. Students should always look directly into their teacher’s eyes when he/she is giving instructions or corrections. Our teachers dearly want to train great dancers. All students should listen when their teacher corrects another student as the suggestion may also apply to them. Students should NOT correct each other.
  • 4. Students should always thank their teachers at the end of class.

This basic code of dancer’s conduct will help teach our dancers respect that will carryover into all aspects of their lives.

Consistent attendance is also crucial for real progress. We all live in a busy world, and it is easy to be distracted. If you want to become a successful dancer, you will need discipline.

Consistent attendance is key!

Hair and Attire

In order to be a dancer, it helps to feel like a dancer!  Proper attire, shoes, and hair is a must for good training, so the dancer has freedom of movement and the teacher can see the dancers‘ positions and movement in order to give necessary corrections.  

Hair is to be pulled up off the neck. If hair is too short, it must be pulled back on the sides with bobby pins or clips.

Dance attire for different dance styles:

Tap/Jazz Ballet Combo: Any style or color leotard. Skirts allowed if above the knee. Hair pulled up off the face. Ballet & Tap shoes are required. No bare feet or socks with no shoes.

Ballet: Black leotard (no skirt), pink tights, pink ballet shoes, hair up in a bun. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Adult Ballet: Your choice of appropriate, well-fitting dance attire. Hair pulled up off the face.

Jazz: Any style of well-fitting leotard or dance attire. No clothing may be worn to obstruct the view of the body (i.e. baggy shirts/ pants). Jazz shoes are required.

Contemporary:  Any style of well-fitting leotard or dance attire. No clothing may be worn to obstruct the view of the body (i.e. baggy shirts/ pants). Feet will be bare.

Tap: Comfortable dance attire. No pants that drag on the floor, feet must be visible. Tap shoes are required.

Hip Hop: Comfortable clothing. No tight jeans. No skirts, no boots, no flip flops, no elevated shoes of any sort. Sneakers preferred. Pant bottoms must be below the knee.

Recitals and Shows

We produce a Big Show every other year for all dancers in a five and a half year old class and older.   This event is held at a theater with more elaborate costumes and assigned-seating tickets. It is a great way to showcase what the dancers have been working on throughout the year.

Dance recital bay area

For all three and a half year old classes through our six to nine year old classes, we offer an Ice Cream Concert every year.  This is a more low-key event held at a local school; a chance for family and friends to come support young dancers at the end of the season. It also gives the dancers the experience to perform in front of an audience, which builds confidence. 

Performing Company

Our performing company is a group that performs at community events and participates in top dance competitions and conventions. We have an outstanding team, with many national scholarship finalists and national convention company members. If your dancer has a passion for dance and competition, the Performing Company may be for you.
