Love, love, love Miss Tess, Tina, and Audra. My daughter loves dance and I love the confidence boost dance gives her. She has friends, has fun, and has a place where she belongs!

Dress Code

Studio Dress Code

*Face coverings are required for anyone entering the building. Facemasks should meet CDC guidelines: over the ear or tie style, a minimum of two layers of breathable fabric, and should fit snugly without gaps. Dancers are more likely to touch or play with an ill-fitting mask. A neck gaiter or face shield is not an adequate substitute for a mask and should not be worn for dance class. Dancers with long classes may want to consider bringing a second mask so they can change if needed. Full CDC guidance on choosing a mask can be found here.

*For all classes, hair must be secured away from the face. Acceptable hairstyles are ponytail, bun, braids, locs, or twists. The most important thing is that hair won’t be in your face or bothering you during class. Some classes require a ballet bun, see below.

*Jewelry other than simple stud earrings should never be worn during class.

*Legs must be covered for all classes. Tights are required for all classes that include ballet. Hip Hop students should wear full-length leggings or tights under their shorts.

*Ballet/Tap/Jazz shoes from Payless or Target DO NOT meet our dress code.
