You've signed up for a dance class, you now need to choose your dance wear.
First, check with your dance school to find
out if they have a dress code. Many dance schools have a dress policy, such as dance leotard and tights for girls, usually requesting certain brands such as
Capezio, Bloch or Energetics or styles and specific colors.
One of the reasons for this is for a dancer to feel the part, they need to be wearing dancer's clothes. They also learn the discipline of always turning up to class wearing
the correct dance clothing and looking neat and tidy.
As with school uniform codes, a dance school dress code ensures all the students wear the same dance attire, eliminating any competition where
you have students trying to outdo each other with better, trendier outfits. This brings the focus back onto the dance class.
