What To Wear

PMPA maintains a dress code to encourage concentration and a sense of inclusiveness (variations in attire can be distracting and contribute to feelings of inequality).

Uniformity in Dancewear allows the teachers to assess how well the students are implementing the technique being taught, problems with alignment, and other important aspects of dance training.

Students should carry their Dancewear, shoes, and other belongings in a dance bag. Please print your child’s name on the bag as well as on all of its contents.

Dancewear is to be kept in good repair and laundered on a regular basis.

Watches, jewellery, and safety pins should not be worn to class.

Dance shoes should never be worn outside.

Students should wear their hair tightly secured and styled away from the face in a neat bun.

Students are expected to observe good personal hygiene habits. Deodorant is required for students age 10 and older.

Dancewear should always be covered up on arrival and departure of the studios.
