Each of our dance classes has a required dress code. Dance wear items can be purchased at the studio on our online dancewear site, Nimbly, HERE.
Why do dance classes have a dress code?
This helps us create a sense of community and belonging in class (my friends are dressed like me so we have something in common), promote discipline in class (when I am in class, wearing my uniform is how I show my teacher that I am ready to learn), and allows for full range of movement (I can move my whole body without anything getting in the way).
Having a set dress code also reduces stress at home when it comes to preparing for dance class!
From a teacher's perspective, having a dress code is a system put forth as part of our classroom management to eliminate distractions (un-tied shoes, dancers taking skirts off, etc). Eliminating these distractions allows us to maximize our time together dancing, learning and growing!
