What Should my Child Wear to Class?

We do not have a strict dress code at Kelli’s Kreative Dance, but we do have guidelines and requirements of what to wear for each class type.

Tap/Ballet Combo classes

Kelli's Kreative Dance Dress Code

For tap/ballet classes, students should wear a leotard (any color, skirt optional) and tights.

Please have a small bag for your child’s shoes and label all shoes with the student’s name.

We recommend tan for tap shoes and pink for ballet shoes. Bloch Mary Jane style tap shoes are preferable for younger students. If the tap shoes come with a ribbon, please replace it with elastic.

No baggy cover-ups or t-shirts should be worn over the leotard while dancing.

Leotards and other KKD apparel items are available in our online studio store, but are not required.

For tap/jazz combo classes, students should wear a leotard (any color) and tights.

Bloch gore slip-on “Super Jazz” jazz shoes are recommended for jazz.
