YOUTH / TEEN DRESS CODE

If a student arrives for class without the required clothing and/or footwear, Diaz Studio of Dance has the right to turn the student away or ask the student to observe the class without granting a class credit.

If you're looking for a local dance apparel/shoe store, check out The Dance Store (2509 S. Robertson Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90034). Tell them your dancer is a student at Diaz Studio of Dance to receive a discount!

Note: Students are not required to wear a certain shoe color for each class, but they might be required to wear a specific shoe color in the recital based upon the chosen costume.

 

ALL BELONGINGS SHOULD BE LABELED WITH THE STUDENT'S NAME. DIAZ STUDIO OF DANCE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR STOLEN ITEMS.
