Dress Codes

A dancer’s dress code is very important to ensure that all students are focused on dancing and ready for their class.  Having all dancers in the correct attire, (including hair styles) is not only for safety, it shows formations, and allows teachers to see and correct appropriately.  Hairstyles affects dancers balance, turns, leaps, and follows the dance discipline mirrored all around the world. 

We enforce three strict rules:

  • No outdoor shoes are to be worn in the studios
  • Dance shoes are NOT to be worn outside
  • Names MUST be written in all items
  • No jewelry to be worn in classes (only stud earrings are permitted)

Always take care of your dance wear & dance shoes and be sure to take all your belongings with you!

Dance Wear & Shoes

We sell dance wear at Dance Works for all your dancing needs at great prices!  Most dance attire and shoes are accurately sized at our studio, are kept in stock, and can be taken home immediately.  If we do not have the item in stock, it will be ordered and delivered within a few weeks.  All dance wear items must be paid for in full when purchased/ordered.   Open House (end of August) is a great time to come in and get all the required dance wear.  We do continue to sell dance wear throughout the dance season until the middle of May.  Dance wear sales will STOP the last 4 weeks of the season.  The “last orders” will be placed in the middle of May.   At this time everyone must have correct shoes and enough pairs of tights to last until the end of the season.  No refunds or exchanges can be made for ANY items.  If you receive a defective item from Dance Works that has NOT been worn, please bring this item in and see Miss Emma.
