Dress Code

Importance

Dress codes are established to promote learning and unity within a classroom

setting. Correct classroom attire not only allows teachers an unobstructed view of correct alignment and muscle use, it is also part of the discipline of dance. We thank you for adhering to our dress code policies and making sure your child is ready for dance class!

Convenience

LDA is proud to offer all of your dress code needs for purchase right at the studio. From leotards, skirts, tights and all shoes, we have what you need for class! No need to run around or order online, we can help make sure you have the right size. Looking for something special? We have access to exclusive styles you won't find anywhere else.

Get Sized

Our staff is trained to size your dancer's shoes with room to grow so you don't have to purchase additional shoes throughout the school year. Bring your dancer to be sized at the La Danse Academie Open House, or stop by the office before your dancer's class. We can also help find the perfect sized leotard, skirts, and tights.
