Dress Code for Classes

Below you’ll find the official dress code for each class at Phoenix Rising Dance Studio. Dress code is important for many reasons, and is therefore non-negotiable. Please have your dancers dressed appropriately for each class.

During the Coronavirus/Covid 19 outbreak, there are a few additional dress code requirements that we have to observe. 1. All persons entering the studio will be wearing a mask. Masks are optional during class, but must be worn in restrooms and all common areas. 2. Each dancer MUST have a metal or plastic water bottle in the studio at all times. We have a water dispenser that they can safely use to fill their water bottles, but will no longer supply cups, which can get confusing. 3. There can be no bare feet in the studio. Even for Contemporary, all dancers must at least be wearing socks!

All dress code can be ordered directly through the studio by obtaining an order form at the front desk, filling it out and returning it to Jordan or Will. Your account will be charged unless you’d rather pay in a different way.
