How to dress

Dressing accordingly is for your child’s benefit. Leotard and tights help teachers see body alignment and muscle use. Hair being pulled back allows proper use of neck and head. Failure to dress accordingly will result in your child sitting out. Sweatshirts can be worn during winter months under instructors permission.
