The dress code at WSD insures the safety of all dancers. Proper dance clothing and footwear allow for free movement of the body, and allows the teacher to check for correct alignment. No jewelry is allowed and hair should be pulled back neatly off of the face in a pony tail or bun. Warm-ups, baggy clothing that obscures the body and socks will not be permitted in the studio. 

If you have any questions about the dress code for your class, please speak with your instructor.
