Dress Code

DDC believes that uniforms foster a more structured and disciplined class environment, which in turn promotes a more positive classroom atmosphere. It is also exceedingly important for our teachers to be able to adequately see their students’ bodies in order to promote proper body alignment; which will in turn aid in correct muscular development and in preventing injuries. Dress code (both hair & attire) will be strictly enforced. Students not meeting the specified dress code will be asked to sit and watch class until the dress code has been met.

Dancers should NOT wear underwear under their leotard and tights. No jewelry, other than stud earrings, is permitted.
