Dance training is an acquired skill that although fun and exciting, requires a certain amount of self-discipline, dedication and focus. Once a course of study has been chosen, we expect each student to work hard and maintain quiet, respectful behavior while in class and on the premises. Doing so will insure a positive atmosphere for all.
We consider it absolutely essential that the correct dance attire and properly fitting shoes be worn in class at all times. No jewelry, body or facial piercing allowed in the class, as they are dangerous to the wearer and their classmates. Please give attention to your personal hygiene as it makes the learning experience more enjoyable for everyone. Students not adhering to the grooming regulations will be asked to sit out.

Girls' hair should be worn off the face either secured in a bun, braid(s) or ponytail. Boys' hair should be neatly combed for all classes. Shoes should be appropriate with elastics/ribbons sewn properly.
Ballet is not only a time-honored art form, but it is a discipline. Its elegant style and technical detail require a strict code grooming. We at DTNE have chosen to adhere to Ballet Company standards for grooming and attire.
Girls’ hair should be in a tight, neat bun, no exceptions. Boys' hair should be neatly combed for all classes. Shoes should be appropriate with elastics/ribbons sewn properly.

Girls' hair should be worn off the face either secured in a bun, braid(s) or ponytail. Boys' hair should be neatly combed for all classes.
(Please note that dance clothes should not be overly baggy)
All dancewear should modestly cover the abdomen and any support. Like any bathing suit, all leotards should be worn without undergarments. If you have any questions or special needs, feel free to speak to us any time.
We are asking you to refrain from buying dance shoes from Walmart and Payless Shoes. This footwear is excellent for dress-up, but is inappropriate for dance class as the shoes are not made of leather and will not respond to the child’s movement. This is very frustrating to the student as well as the teacher. Also, tap shoes from these discount stores release harmful aluminum filings into the air and are not safe for studio use. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
