Class FAQs

What should my dancer wear to class?

All students are required to wear dance-specific clothing to class. Examples include: leotard and tights, dance pants, leggings, tank tops, and bike shorts. We recommend fitted clothing options to avoid material getting in the way of instruction. All shoe requirements are listed on our fall class schedule. All students must have hair pulled back neatly away from their face. Hair should stay secure through the entire of dance class to avoid disruption.

What shoes will my dancer need?

Dance shoes are listed for each specific class in our fall schedule.

Will I be required to purchase costumes?

Yes. All registered students are required to perform in our end of year spring recital. Students receive a separate costume for each class. On average, fees range from $75-$95 per recreational costume. A $25 costume deposit is required for each costume and is deducted from the total price of the costume. Full costume balances are typically due November 1st. Your remaining costume balance will be announced mid-October and drafted from your account in November.

For the end of year performance, dancers will need to have the shoes listed for their class in the fall schedule. Dancers will be required to wear specific tights as well (usually pink for ballet and skin-tone for all other dance forms). More information about tights requirements will be available after costumes are selected.

If for any reason your dancer is not able to join the end of year recital and you do not wish to purchase your group costume, written notice must be submitted via email ( by October 31st to avoid an additional costume fee. Recital information will be available as we near the event.

What happens if I miss my class?

If for any reason your dancer is unable to attend their weekly class, you will have the option to attend a class of similar age and skill level within two weeks of the class missed. There are no refunds or discounts for classes missed. If you would like to make up a class, please reach out to our office staff to coordinate. You can reach us by email ( or by phone 919-467-7040.
