DRESS CODE

Creating a safe environment
so you can be at your besT. 

EXPRESS YOURSELF

At SkunkWorks we love celebrating the uniqueness and individuality that each of our dancers embody, so we are not a studio that has a set leotard color or boxed in dress code for our students.

 

Overall, we want our dancers to feel comfortable and confident, and feel empowered in expressing their own style! 

Though while we are pro-stylistic expression, we are still a dance studio first, so to create a safe and productive environment for all of our students, our dances must abide by these basic dress code rules.

GENERAL RULES

1. No clothing with foul language or other inappropriate words.

2. Students under the age of 10, must be covered in the torso region (ex: No shirts off for boys or bikini tops for girls.)

3. Adults - There is no particular dress code for adult classes. Please just make sure your outfit is movable / comfortable and your hair out of your face. 

BALLET

Outfit:

Women - A leotard of any color and pink tights. Tights must be under the leotard and no underwear should be worn. (Your tights serve as underwear!)

Men - Athletic shorts (not baggy) and a tight fitting t-shirt or tank. Dance belts are encouraged.

 

Feet: Ballet shoes are required for both male and female dancers. We recommend canvas shoes.

 

Hair: If hair is past the chin a bun or french twist. If hair is long enough to be in the eyes, but too short for a bun, pigtails or half-up-half-down looks are acceptable.
