A neat appearance helps students with their attitude and performance in class. All students must furnish their own attire and shoes for classes and shoes and tights for performances, unless otherwise specified by VRBA. Students are required to have appropriate attire by the second week of classes. No dangling earrings, watches, necklaces, or bracelets are to be worn in class. No fingernail polish or long nails. Absolutely NO STREET CLOTHES are to be worn during class. This includes loose fitting t-shirts, shorts, etc. The teacher has the right to dismiss any student from class who does not adhere to the dress code.
Dancers should arrive at the studio with street clothes covering their dance attire. Please do not allow your dancer to wear their dance shoes outside. It tracks in dirt and makes the dance floor very slippery.
