Dress Code

Not only does being dressed properly instill a respect for this art form, but it also greatly affects how a dancer takes class. Going to the beach in your parka would inhibit your ability to fully enjoy that experience – dance is no different! Below is a breakdown of each class and the necessary dancewear items your dancer needs to meet the DiDa dress code.

To make life a bit easier, we have complied all of these items into an Amazon wish list linked here. If for some reason the item is no longer available using the given link, please search the title/name of product and you should be able to find it elsewhere.

Please be mindful of bows or any “accessories” that might easily become a distraction in class. Please avoid any dresses/skirts as they will inhibit the movement done in class.
