MAMA Dress Code

Dress Code

 A students dress is a reflection of their discipline and respect for the art form. 

Placement and lines are paramount in dance. 

Our dress code allows our teachers to observe and correct the posture and alignment of our students. 

We ask that students come dressed prepared to dance in the appropriate dance attire for class. 

Hair needs to be secured and out of the face, in a bun for Ballet.

Jewelry, watches, fit bits, street shoes & cell phones/electronic devices are to be left

outside of the dance studios at all times.


MAMA DanceWear Store carries all dance wear items right at the Academy for your convenience.

Shoes that are listed will also be used in the June Performance Recital.
