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.
In class, a uniform dress code enables an instructor to see at a glance if dancers are in correct position, or need correction. Having uniform dress put all class members on the same page, and encourages cohesion. When you add sparkles, lace, bling, trim, etc., class wear becomes a costume, and costumes are for the stage, not the studio.
If you have any questions about dress code, please feel free to contact us or call Will at the studio.
Dancers in ANY class at the studio should bring their own covered water bottle to avoid passing germs, although there is a water fountain and water bottle filling station on site.
Jazz, Musical Theatre, Tap For these classes, dancers are expected to wear black leotards, black or skin-toned tights, and black jazz shoes. Jazz and Tap shoes are required for jazz/tap musical theatre/tap combo classes. Dancers can also wear black fitted shorts in place of the tights. Tap students may wear slip-on or tied-tap shoes, but slip-on should be worn for dancers unable to tie their shoes. Contemporary students are usually expected to dance barefoot.
