Ballet Lubbock Dress Code

A dress code ensures that a teacher will be able to see a dancer’s alignment and positioning. A dress code supports the students discipline in class and helps with overall focus and energy. Dress codes also create unity among the dancers rather than allowing a few dancers to stand out, much like a school uniform policy. Dress codes go a long way in minimizing distractions, aid the teacher with instruction, and help give classes a unified look.

*Jazzy Taps Dancewear, a local dance store, carries our dress code and shoe choices. **Female students should not wear underwear underneath their tights and leotard.
