Dress Code

All Dance wear items can be purchased at CPDC!

As in every activity that we participate in, the appropriate dress code is implemented for a reason. For dancing, wearing proper dance wear to class allows for ease of movement, as well as, providing the teacher with the ability to detect and correct any physical problems students may have with their body alignment. We suggest articles of clothing and shoes are labeled with the student’s name in order to minimize lost items.
