Dress Code

The importance of a Dress Code

At UVDC we believe that wearing studio uniforms give students a sense of belonging to our family as well as creating an identity for our studio in the greater community. Uniformity in dance wear allows the teacher to assess how well the students are implementing the technique being taught, problems with alignment, and other important aspects of dance training. *Please do not purchase any dance wear or shoes prior to a trial class with UVDC! (Dance attire and required shoes and tights are available for purchase at the studio for registered UVDC students.)

Hair & Jewelry

  • Hair should always be secured off of the face & neck. A bun is required for ballet, and a low bun is required for acrobatic  dance. (braids & ponytails are accepted in all other classes if tight without loose hairs. )
  • Watches, jewelry, and safety pins should not be worn to class or in performances with the exception of stud earrings.

Undergarments

  • Dancers undergarments should never be visible in a performance or class. Underwear should not be worn under tights for class or performance with the exception of the approved dance panty. Please see the office for details.
