Student Dress Code

Each class has a required dress code to ensure comfort, safety and discipline. Proper dress for dance students creates a respect for the discipline in which they are studying. Encore Dance Theatre requires each student to follow these guidelines. Should this be a problem, please speak to a staff member so we can ensure each student has what they need to be successful in class. Encore Dance Theatre is respectful of ALL gender preferences and will work with you to help find them best option for all!
