  • GENERAL ATTIRE NOTES

    Proper dance attire and shoes must be worn - dress for success - look the part, and dress like a dancer!  Hair should always be pulled back off the face.  No loose hair or jewelry.  Please label all your shoes, bags, clothes, etc.  Any items left behind go in the lost and found at the Front Desk, and we donate all items to charity several times throughout the school year.

  • PRE-K & K/1 COMBO CLASSES

    JAZZ/HIP HOP: Clothing that allows for movement.  Athletic shorts, a t-shirt, and tennis shoes are a perfect outfit for this class.  No school uniforms, denim, sandals, or anything that makes it difficult to move around freely.

DRESS CODE

 

The Pulse sells many of the basics dancers will need for class:  trunks, sports bras, tights, leotards, tap ties, bun covers, and dance bags.  We also have coupons at the front desk for several of the local dancewear stores that will carry a larger variety of styles and brands.
