Dress Code
At Dance Amour, our dress code is in place to ensure dancers are wearing proper attire for learning and to establish unity within classes. We encourage modesty in dress and action so the focus of our classes and performances can be on the dancers and their talents, not on showing off the body. Our promise to you is that the costumes we use in the recital will always be modest having sleeves and midriffs covered. However, the leotards that dancers choose to wear to class are not required to have sleeves.

All students are required to wear proper dance attire.
