Dance Factory believes in the importance of requiring a Uniform Dress Code. All dance-wear must be ordered through Local Dance Wear Store or Online. Please use the stores listed below on our dress code page to ensure everyone is dressed properly for class.
WHY IS A DRESS CODE IMPORTANT AT THE DANCE FACTORY?
People often want to know why you have to wear certain clothes and shoes for dance classes. I found this clear and simple explanation:
“A dress code ensures that a teacher will be able to see a dancer’s alignment and positioning. The teacher needs to be able to see a dancer’s mistakes. Baggy clothing can mask bad habits, making corrections impossible.
A dress code will also teach students discipline, helping with overall focus and energy. By “dressing the part,” dancers feel like dancers. Dress codes can also create unity among the dancers instead of causing a few dancers to stand out, much like a school uniform policy. Dress codes go a long way in minimizing distractions, and help give classes a unified look.”
All of our classes at the Dance Factory require students to adhere to a dress code. Hair should always be pulled up and secured off the neck – (for shorter hair – clips and barrettes should be used to keep the hair out of the eyes).
The proper shoes are important because they are designed to support the technique and style of each specific type of dance. Street shoes are bad for dance floors – leaving scuffs, tears, and dirt. Street shoes and socks also contribute to breaking down the non-slip surface of the specialized rubber floors called Marley.
Thank you for helping us provide the best atmosphere and learning environment possible for your children.
