Why Have We Chosen a Dress Code?
We require a specific leotard and shoes for class. Why? For many reasons:
It simplifies things for parents, you’ll know exactly what your student needs and how to get it.
It will help the students put the focus on learning and not on fashion.
It will teach that discipline is required to be part of dance class.
It defines our levels and gives the students a sense of belonging to our Katdance family.
The students really enjoy progressing through the Kitty ranks and getting a new color leotard and t-shirt!
Of course, we occasionally have dance days when the students can wear any dancewear or costume they like...that's always fun too!

Level 2 – Kute Kubs – Light Blue
Level 3 – Kool Kats – Lavender
Level 4 – Kreative Kougars – Black
Level 1-2-3-4 Ballet Shoes:
NO PAYLESS OR TARGET SLIPPERS!
I recommend Julian’s Dancewear (in the Outback Plaza in Mandarin).
Pink Leather Ballet Slippers -
Bloch "Belle" or "Giselle" slipper for Levels 1-2-3 because they have no drawstring. For Level 4 Ballet, I recommend going to Julian's Dancewear and trying on Capezio "Hanami" (they are super soft!) or Bloch Brand Ballet Slippers. Sizing Ballet Shoes can be tricky.
Level 3-4 Jazz Shoes: Bloch ‘Super Jazz’ slip on Jazz Shoe (or similar) in tan. ASK your teacher before you purchase jazz shoes.
Boys (Wild Kats): Black gym shorts/sweat pants/dance pants and a white t-shirt, black jazz shoes
Hair: Must be secured off the neck, preferred in a bun or pulled back with barrettes or headband for short hair.
