*Inappropriate dress during ballet class: pants, leggings, capris, t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, track jackets, bulky sweaters.  If you are cold and don't have ballet warm-ups there are extra Ballet sweaters in the basket next to the pink trunk that you can wear during class as long as you put them back in the basket.

Never use your dance shoes as street shoes; don't wear them outside.

Cover up your dance clothes when going to and from the studio... throw on pants and a shirt of some sort.
