Dress Code

Female dancers must wear red leotards for Dance Wisconsin classes. Pink tights and pink ballet slippers are to be worn in ballet class. Jazz shoes for jazz class. Wrap skirts may be worn if they match the leotard color. No bulky warm-ups or sweats in class. Male dancers should wear well-fitting white t-shirt or tank top, dance belt, black tights or leggings, and black ballet slippers, or jazz shoes for Jazz class. No bulky warm-ups or sweats in class.

For all dancers: Hair must be up and secured in a bun if long enough. If hair is not long enough for a bun, hair must be tightly secured up away from the face, eyes, and neck. Please, no ponytails. Barrettes are not enough by themselves. Absolutely no jewelry in class.

Studio Rules

Chewing gum, eating, and/or drinking are not allowed in the studio. Students are expected to arrive to class on time, and will not be allowed to participate in class if they are more than 10 minutes late (due to risk of injury from missing warm-up). Quiet must be maintained in the halls and dressing rooms while classes are in session. DW reserves the right to eject, suspend, or dismiss any student whose attitude, attendance, or behavior is disruptive, distracting, or otherwise unsatisfactory. Students may not leave class or the studio facility early without permission or instructor notification.
