Yoga

Yogis should wear athletic clothes that are comfortable and that they can easily move around in. Suggested clothes would be leggings with a tank top. No shoes are required for this class. Please have a yoga mat and block.

Note: If a student is not appropriately attired, the student will be asked to sit and watch the class. Our dress code is to ensure the safety of our dancers as well as to allow the instructors to properly see the dancer’s body alignment and technique. If you aren’t sure about a dress requirement, please ask your child’s instructor. Do not wear any of your dance footwear outside of the studio. This is for the protection of the dance floors as well as your dance shoes. Hair should always be pulled back off of the face. In order to maximize instructional time, students should come to class with their hair and dance attire ready. Dancers should arrive a few minutes early to class in order to put their appropriate shoes on. Please keep extra hair supplies such as hair ties, bobby pins, hairspray, etc. in your student’s dance bag.

Thank you for your support!
