Dress Code

Dress Code

At Precision Dance Conservatory we believe that structure is important in the art of dance. We believe that dance teaches so many necessary life skills that students are able to use in the future. Self-discipline, self-respect, responsibility, and determination are all beautifully learned in dance. Our dress code was established to promote the students’ freedom of movement and the instructor’s observation of correct technique.

We have differentiated the Ballet levels by the color of leotard. This color distinction gives the student a sense of accomplishment as the dancer moves up in levels and graduates to a new color of leotard.

Hair should be worn off the face/neck and in a secure bun (with the use of hairspray/gel, bobby pins, and hair net) for ballet. This enhances the dancer’s vision and enables the instructor to observe proper alignment of neck and shoulders. If your child’s hair is falling out by the end of class it is not secure enough.
