will be asked to remove pants that are too long. Tights are required
writing on dancer butts.
underwear under leotards.
Dancers not dressed properly will be asked to call home for dance
clothes & watch the dance class until the proper dance clothes
arrive. Dirty dance clothes are not an excuse.
jewelry is allowed. This includes necklaces, bracelets, anklets, rings,
dangly earrings & pony tail holders on their wrists. Please make
sure these items are left at home. DANCEMOVES is not responsible

pink ballet shoes-preferably split soles & in any case not Pay-less

5-Dancers should have water or a sports drink with them. Please make
sure they discard the bottle or take it with them. Water is for sale at
studio for $1.00 per bottle.
dancers in 5-6-7-8 Dance, Inc. EXCLAMAT!ON, & Kidazzle &/or
attending conventions &competitions are required to have DANCEMOVES
jackets, t-shirts, dance pants, and dance bag.
dancers in the performance group are required to attend all
performances. If this is too much for your child to handle please let
me know. Absence at performances (as well as regular dance class) is
very UNFAIR to the
8-Dancers in Tues. Thurs. adv. Sat. classes EXCLAMAT!ON &
not their parents.....are required to CALL if they will be
absent...unless they have laryngitis or are on their “death bed”. These
classes REQUIRE commitment. Too many absences will result in being
dropped from the
routines. Costume charges & Showcase Fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.
Dancers in Kidazzle, or EXCLAMAT!ON, & are going to drop any dance
classes (for any reason) the first class to be dropped will be the
precision group. This has been the unwritten rule for 10 years and has
been the written rule for the past 6 years. These groups are all about
commitment to the group and to dance as an art form.
you for your support. Elizabeth & I are looking forward to an
amazing dance year!
