4SDC Dress Code Information

4SDC maintains a dress code to encourage concentration and a sense of inclusiveness. Uniformity in dance wear allows the teachers to assess how well the students are implementing the technique being taught, problems with alignment, and other important aspects of dance training. 

We understand that a student may start class with different attire and shoes and move towards the requirements as new shoes and attire are purchased.

Please be advised: Jewelry and watches should not be worn to class.  Dance-shoes should never be worn outside. Dance wear is to be kept in good condition and laundered on a regular basis. Please label all belongings with your dancer’s name. Hair should be tightly secured, away from the face; a neat bun is preferred. No baggy clothes. No inappropriate words, signs, or symbols on clothing.
