Dress code is an important part of every dancer’s training. Our dress code is designed to encourage unity and discipline among our dancers. In addition, it keeps the class focused and improves the instructor’s ability to assess and correct placement. 

No Jewelry (except small stud earrings). 

Dangling earrings and hoops are strictly forbidden due to safety reasons. No necklaces, bracelets/watches/Fitbit allowed. 

Dancers will not be allowed to participate in class if they are not in proper dress code according to their level. 

Starting in for the Fall Session, all leotards will be Athena Dance Academy brand and level colors will change. DO NOT PURCHASE ANY NEW LEOTARDS UNTIL YOUR FALL SCHEDULE IS SET.
