Dress Code

At Studio 5•6•7•8 we believe in being professional in our classes by providing the best possible dance education to our students.  Having a dress code is one of the criteria in achieving that goal. For teachers, a dress code helps in correcting body alignment, stretched feet and extended knees that cannot be seen when draped in baggy sweats.

The list below outlines the proper attire that all dancers require. If a dancer has multiple classes in one night, we ask that they wear a bodysuit and tights to ALL classes, so there is no need to change between classes. Our changerooms will be closed until further notice. 

All the items listed can be purchased at “Starburst Dancewear” located at 1175 Wilson Street East, Ancaster. 905-304-0169
