In order to participate in class, it is required that students arrive with the proper dance attire, hair style and shoes. Teachers must be able to see that the student's alignment is correct. Students are required to wear a leotard in their designated class color (please see below; leotards and skirts of that color only may be worn in ballet class), tights and ballet shoes and hair must be pulled up away from the face and off of the neck. No street clothes are allowed, and shorts can be worn only with the permission of the instructor. HDT has set up a school page on Discount Dance Supply's website where proper leotard styles and colors are available, as well as the required shoes. Dress code will be more lenient for modern, jazz, and tap classes. In these classes, we ask that you wear a leotard under jazz pants or leggings. Shirts may be worn in these three classes, as well, as long as they are not loose on the body. DRESS CODE WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED. For the dancer's safety, teachers will ask students to watch class if they are not dressed appropriately. Dance is a discipline, and like any sport participants must dress in proper "gear." Similarly, Apprentice and Company members will NOT be allowed to wear socks. Ballet or pointe shoes must be worn by these students or they will be asked to watch class. No exceptions.
