Do you have a dress code?
Ballet only classes are the only classes at RDC with a strict dress code. For all other classes, dancers should wear comfortable clothing (NO JEANS!) and the appropriate type of shoes for the type of dance.
For Mini, Tot and Kinder Tap & Ballet classes, dancers can wear any comfortable clothes, leotards and tights are fine. Please no costumes or accessories except for the week of Halloween. Dancers will need Black Tap & Pink Ballet shoes for class. Boys may wear black ballet shoes or black socks and black tap shoes.
Hair must be pulled back away from the face in a ponytail, bun or similar style. Hair should be secured with clips/bobby pins so that it will not fall out during class.
Dancers may be asked to leave class if not dressed appropriately or if hair is not pulled back. Dancers without leotards will not be allowed to participate in ballet classes.
