Dance Class

Dress Code

I want you to experience the joy that dance gives to so many people. Wear clothing that you feel comfortable moving in. With that in mind, I strongly recommend smooth, tight fitting and solid colored garments for all classes. These garments will help you get the most value out of class by allowing your instructor to see your muscles clearly. If you have any questions regarding my dress code, please don’t hesitate to ask .

AT THIS TIME, ALL STUDENTS AND CAREGIVERS MUST WEAR FACE COVERINGS WHILE THEY ARE IN MY STUDIO SPACE
