Proper Dance Attire and Hair


Does your dance teacher nag you about your hair?

Taking off your hoodie in class?

Being appropriately groomed?

Do you know why?

She’s preparing you for life out in the world.

Wear your uniform with pride. Be ready for class. Show you have prepared. Show that you are ready. Show that you care. Look like a dancer – feel like a dancer, for casual clothes in class equals a casual mind. Show up, and look the part. Don’t hide under sweaters. Your body is your instrument – show it so you can grow.

Be ready to receive corrections with humility and grace – they are your teachers gift to you. When you hide, you avoid feedback. When you get no feedback, that’s when you should start to worry.

Your teacher has given up. She does not want to ask you to take off your sweater one more time. Do this yourself, and be ready!

Be humble. Be hungry.

This is why good grooming is important.
