2020-2021 Dress Code

The goal at Beyond Dance is to provide your child with a fun and challenging dance class each time they come to the studio. At the same time, we need each child to follow specific dress code guidelines when they come into each class.

  1. Always have your child’s hair pulled back into a bun or ponytail. If the hair is too short for a bun or ponytail, please try your best to pull it away from the face.
  2. Do not come to dance class in street clothes – always wear proper dance clothes.
  3. No gum in class.
  4. No jewelry (aside from small earrings) should be worn to class. It can tear the tights or fall off during class.
  5. Do not wear underwear under dance clothes. For a streamline look and ease of movement, dance wear is designed to be worn independently.

Each type of class may require a different style of dress. Please review the following to find your child’s class(es).
