WHAT TO WEAR:
We recommend basic clogging oxfords for our kids classes. These shoes come in children's sizes, and there is a supply of lightly used shoes in circulation locally. Adults can wear any leather-soled shoe or taps.
For class: We recommend wearing comfortable clothes you would exercise in. Many students and instructors wear workout clothes; others wear jeans.
For performance: We require students to follow a dress code for class performances, but we are strictly obligated to freedom of expression. Past dress codes have stated, for instance, "a nice shirt in a shade of blue with black pants or black skirt". The most important consideration in dressing for traditional arts performance is to, without pretense of grandeur, pay homage to the art form and the people who wrought it. We are strongly opposed to wearing costumes for traditional arts performance.
