Why a Dress Code??

  • Confidence: Children are more confident in the classroom when they don’t have to worry about what to wear today.
  • Character: Students learn to focus on the attributes within versus appearance as they interact with their peers.
  • Consistency: Students learn to follow a weekly routine and structure with their dance classes. The physical preparation with dress code is used as a reminder to mentally prepare for class with focus and a positive mindset.
  • Safety: As our center strives to be safety-conscious for all of our students, having color-coded classes allows us to be prepared for quick head counts in an emergency situation and to better keep track of our students in the event of an evacuation.
