SUMMER DRESS CODE
In general, for Academy Summer Dance Events, the DRESS CODE is the same as our regular season classes.
★Also, for the Summer - please NO mid-riffs, crop tops, or open area clothing in Academy Classes, Camps, & Intensives. ★
CLICK HERE for our regular season (Aug. - May) Dress Code & information.
NEW Students to the Academy - please call the Academy Office (706) 561-8085 and our Staff will be able to
provide you with options for summer dancewear & shoes.
Adventure Princess Dance CAMPS - unless the dancer already has a leotard, tights, & dance shoes, they are free to wear comfortable clothes and shoes that they are able to move in (i.e. t-shirt, shorts, & sneakers).
---No specific dress code is required. If a dancer has a favorite leotard or ballet/jazz shoes, they can wear those too!
JUNE Series Classes & JULY Intensives - dancers should wear their previous season's class color leotard, tights, & dance shoes. *Since the June & July sessions feature a variety of classes in a condensed format, dancers that have ballet or jazz shoes from the past dance year should bring those to each class they attend. There is no need to purchase each specific dance style shoes for the summer sessions - it is perfectly fine to wear what they have for the summer. When the new fall dance season begins in August, dancers will have the opportunity to purchase dance shoes based on their scheduled classes for the upcoming season.
**If a student is new to dance or dancewear is needed, please call the Office for assistance.
BOOTCAMP Dance Conditioning - dancers should wear their previous season's class color leotard & tights with Ballet/Jazz shoes in your dance bag for specific dance based workouts. Dancers may want to bring and/or wear sneakers for portions of the class that involve full body cardio or strength training. Optional items that may be worn over leotard & tights include shorts or tank tops. Please do not wear bulky clothing.
➜Also, dancers may want to bring a small towel from home for perspiration throughout class & don't forget to bring a screw-top water bottle! 👍
