Dress Code

Dance is a disciplined art.

 

 

Therefore, ULTIMATE DANCE does require our students to adhere to our dress code. Our teachers need to see the dancer and not be distracted by tulle skirts, crazy colors, or pants and ill fitting shorts! Dancers who want a proper dance education should be use to a dress code, or those with us for the first time will come to appreciate it. While we have heard stories of our dress code being "super strict", it is simply any style burgundy leotard and transition pink tights! We do require hair to be in a bun for all classes, except hip hop, which is a pony tail.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

1. Hair must be in a bun for all classes.  Hip Hop can have a pony tail as a minimum, as all hair must be pulled back and away from the dancer's face. UDF Team is required to have a bun for all classes except Hip Hop. Dancers will be sent out to correct hair from class if necessary. UDF will sell "hair kits" for $5 to those who need to correct their hair for any UDF class.

 

 2. For the safety of the dancers, NO JEWELRY!! (small post earring are ok). UDF will not be responsible for lost or stolen jewelry removed due to being removed for class. 

 

3. Dance shoes/clothes are the dancer's responsibility.  UDF will not be responsible for lost or stolen items. Please take dance bags with you into your classes. Keep dance bags zipped up. 

 

4. When offered, students who take optional ABT examinations will be required to purchase required examination leotard and skirt for the examination.

 

5. No other "boy shorts" permitted in classes, except burgundy/maroon/black cherry. NO BLACK.

 

6. Students who are "trying class", please wear dance wear if you have it, if not, please wear fitted clothes.

 

7. All dance wear is available online  through various dance wear websites, or at Melbourne Dance Wear on US1 or Dance Gear on Barton Road. Please ask us if you are having trouble locating any of our required items. Please do not "substitute" any required items. 

 

8. Items may be updated as discontinued or unavailable. We will provide an alternate for the item.

 

9. Please be aware of "runs" or holes in tights. While a small hole or "run" is acceptable, large holes and multiple runs are not. Please replace promptly when these holes appear. We do sell tights at the studio.

 

10. Cell phones are expected to be on silent and put away in dance bags. If you have an emergency and need 

to reach your dancer, please call the studio and we will get your child for you. Texting in class is disruptive to the learning environment. Teachers may collect cell phones prior to class to keep the classroom environment non-distracting. UDF is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged cell phones/ipads/electronics.
