ETIQUETTE and DRESS CODE REQUIREMENTS

Students need to arrive on time for class, in the proper attire, with hair secured. EPAC’s dress code is designed to encourage unity, simplicity and discipline among our students. Students not meeting the required dress code will be asked to observe class. Please keep hallway noise to a minimum. No running or shouting in the hallways is allowed. Please respect that students are being instructed in the studios. EPAC has a Student Policy Handbook that you may pick up at the studio. It will also be handed out at the beginning of the year.

DRESS CODE

We recommend the canvas soft ballet shoes by Sansha or one of the makers of the leather ballet shoes (Danskin, Capezio, Bloch, etc.) Please no Isotoner slip-ons for ballet shoes. Tights are required to be footed and worn inside the shoe. Girls tights are to be worn underneath the leotard. Please sew on all shoe elastics and tuck in drawstrings. No halter style leotards. Hair for girls must be pulled back off of the face and neck into a neat bun. If hair is too short to be pulled back into a bun, please wear a head band to keep the hair from falling on the face. There are no exceptions to this hair requirement. Please do not wear watches, jewelry (small post earrings are fine), or rubber bands on your wrist. No skirts or warm-ups are allowed to be worn during class. Warm-ups are good for before and after class.
