Dress Code: A dress code has both practical and aesthetic purposes. The study of dance is a physical discipline that requires teacher supervision. Proper attire in dance class enables the teacher to give corrections regarding body alignment and insures the safety of the dance. Hair must be kept off the neck and pulled back from the face. For females, buns are required in all ballet classes. Jewelry is not allowed in class and should be left athome. Any student who does not have proper attire may be asked to observe rather than participate in class.
Ballet and Creative Movement: Females wear black leotard, pink tights, and pink leather ballet slippers in all ballet classes. Girls in creative movement classes may wear tutus after awarded by the teacher. Leotards with attached skirts are discouraged. Older girls may wear ballet skirts or knit dance shorts. Any sweaters or legwarmers should be removed after warm-up. Boys in creative movement and beginning classes wear black or gray shorts, white fitted t-shirts, white socks, and black leather ballet shoes. Black or gray sweatpants are permitted at the discretion of the teacher. Males in advanced classes wear black tights, white t-shirt, and black shoes.
Pre-school Move & Groove: Shorts and t-shirt or a leotard of any color. Bare feet, ballet slippers, or jazz sneakers.
Tap, Jazz, Modern and Lyrical: Females may wear any color leotard and black, tan, or pink tights. Jazz pants or shorts are permitted. Hems of pants must not touch the floor. No sweat pants, pajama pants, or boxers. Two piece dancewear (top and pants) must be form fitting. No exposed midriffs. No baggy t-shirts. Males wear Jazz pants and form fitting t-shirt.
Shoes: Tan slip-on jazz shoes. Tan buckled tap shoes. (Black shoes for males) Lyrical and Modern dance may be taken barefoot or with lyrical sandals, foot undies, or similar.

Additional Opportunities: We encourage exposure to professional dance by providing many different educational opportunities. Dancers may choose to participate in regional dance workshops and master classes.
At Act Two Studios we want every class to be a positive experience. One key to this is communication. If you or your child encounter a problem of any kind please bring it to the attention of the teacher right away. No concern is ever considered insignificant, but we can’t fix a problem if we are not aware of it. Your success in class and your enjoyment of the art of dance is our constant and primary goal.
