How Fitting

Dress Code



All students are required to abide by the dress code in order to participate in their registered class(es). For safety reasons, no jewelry or watches are to be worn in class. Hair must be pulled back in a bun for all ballet classes. For all other classes, hair must be pulled back out of face, unless directed otherwise by instructor. Since TDHNV is located in a commercial plaza, we request that students bring clothing to wear over their dance clothes, when leaving the facility.

Students who do not meet the listed dress code requirements will be asked to sit out of class and observe without the option to make-up that class.


**Dance shoes may be purchased through our online store. If you are uncertain about what size your dancer needs, you can have them sized for jazz and ballet shoes at the front desk.
