Dress for Success

Now that you have decided to dance with us, it is time to prepare your child for success in the classroom by purchasing appropriate dancewear.

Skaters need skates, swimmers need swimsuits, music lessons need an instrument, dancers need dancewear.

Dancewear is an integral part of every dancer’s life. While parents may wish to buy dancewear that allows some growing room and lesser quality materials for a more cost-effective purchase, this is not advisable.

Dance clothing is intended to be ‘fitted’, and have a three-way stretch as part of the functions.

Finally, studio uniforms are a way of adjustment and discipline, as well as representing the studio culture.

Everyone wearing the same clothing prepares students for a structured environment of formal behaviour.

Dancewear discipline is required at Deborah Messinger School of Dance
