NO gum chewing.

Junior & Senior Dancers:

A strict ballet dress code will be enforced for all Jr. and Sr. dancers taking ballet at AMDA.  If the dress code is broken on the day of class we will ask that you call home to see if clothes can be brought to you and if they can not be you will be asked to not participate in class. 

The customary attire of tights and a leotard during class time is to allow the dancer freedom of movement and allows not only the teacher but also the student to evaluate alignment and technique.

Ballet Attire:
   *Hair pulled back and away from face (a bun is preferred)
   *Pink Tights
   *Black Leotard
