Attention parents and dancers!


Recently, we have been having problems with dancers not coming to class
with the appropriate dance attire and hair. Down below are the required attire rules that TDC has set up so that your dancer can have the best possible results in all classes.


  • Ballet: ​Must have hair in a bun! Not a ponytail or pigtails or braids! Must have a black leotard, pink ballet tights, and pink ballet slippers.
  • Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Tap, Musical Theatre, Performance Swing, Latin/Ballroom: ​Must have hair off of face (e.g.  ponytail, half-up half-down. Must be in all-black dance attire! Black leggings, black bootie shorts, black sweats. Tops need to be all-black as well (sports bra, t-shirt, tank top, etc.) but can have no writing, with the exception of the TDC t-shirt in black or the hot pink recital t-shirt.
  • Shoes: All classes require different dance shoes (e.g. ballet slippers for ballet, or tap shoes for tap). Dancers need to have the required dance shoe for each individual class.

Please remember that these dance attire requirements were implemented so that each dancer looks the same and so that it can improve their learning experience. If dancer does not have the correct attire on, that dancer will not be able to participate in that class. We appreciate the dancers who have kept true to these requirements and who have been a good example to those who don't follow the rules.


We hope that we don't have to address this issue anymore.
