Dress Code

Erin’s Dance Club maintains a dress code to encourage concentration and a sense of inclusiveness (variations in attire can be distracting and contribute to feelings of inequality). Uniformity in dancewear allows the teachers to assess how well the students are implementing the technique being taught, problems with alignment, and other important aspects of dance training. If a student comes to class and is not adhering to the specific dress code, he/she will be sent home with a friendly reminder to review dress code policies.
