At MDA we educate our dancers about the importance of showing up to class on time and properly prepared. It is a valuable life skill as well as a sign of respect to their teachers and peers when they are properly dressed for class.
For dancers taking multiple classes per day, please make sure you wear an outfit and hairstyle* that meets the requirements for ALL your classes, especially if your classes are back to back.
*It is ok to wear pink ballet slippers if they still fit from the previous year. Once you’ve out grown them, please purchase skin coloured ballet slippers going forward.
**Short hair is welcome in our classes, simply pin it back off of your face.
We at Momentum DanceArts understand that dance has had a history of gendering uniforms and aligning with a strict, outdated binary of gender expectations. We know that binary, in fact, does not exist and we want our students to feel safe
and comfortable in their identities and what they wear.
Your gender expression is welcome and celebrated here.
