For our recreational classes, students should wear proper dancer attire. Leotards, tights (not mandatory), half-tops, dance shorts, and dance skirts are all considered acceptable dance wear. Dancers will need ballet or jazz shoes and tap shoes for class. Any style and color is okay. If you need recommendations on what to purchase please ask your instructor.
For ballet/ pointe, dancers should wear solid colored leotards with pink tights, ballet shoes, and hair in a bun. Please minimize holes in the tights. For jazz/tap/contemporary classes dancers need to wear dance shorts, leotard, or sports top for classes with hair pulled tightly out of their face. No baggy clothes.
Students are expected to attend all classes.. In case of an absence, please send Whitney an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. RPAC will not refund tuition, apply credit, or deduct money for missed classes. Students may make up absences with any other class at RPAC if there is another age appropriate class offered during the week. RPAC will not offer private lessons as a way to make up a missed class. Please make every effort to be in attendance to each and every class. Please be punctual to classes. Classes will begin and end at their designated times. RPAC is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students. Students are not to be left at the studio for excessive time periods before or after their classes.
