What to Wear for Dance

What are the Benefits of a Uniform?


We are Dressing for Success

“Dress for the job you want!” When a student walks into the studio with their dance uniform on and their hair pulled back, it instills in them a sense that they are not just taking a dance class, but that they are in fact a dancer.


Creates a Team

A uniform gives the dancers something they all have in common and builds a positive sense of community. In this community, we can build friendships and celebrate each others success. Wearing the same colours as the dancers beside you helps to eliminate bullying and the temptation to “one up” each other. We are all in this together.


Promotes a Safe Environment

Dance is fun, often fast and we don’t always see where we are landing. Having properly fitted clothing and hair pulled off the face helps to eliminate the risk of unnecessary slips and falls. The uniform also helps your teacher check for proper body placement to perform tricks safely.
