To ensure that all students are appropriately dressed and wear appropriate shoes, Kristi’s Academy of Dance/KADG Performing Arts has enacted a strict dress code policy. We respectfully ask parents to ensure that their children abide by the following policies:

Leotards and tights are preferred and are absolutely essential if your child is taking a dance class. Exercise or aerobic attire is permitted for other classes. Put your name in all dance shoes and dancewear in case of loss. If you change shoes during class for a different subject, a dance bag is strongly recommended to avoid “shoe mix-ups.”

Please note: jeans, jean shorts, pants, or other types of “school attire” are not allowed. If you are unable to change before coming to class, bring class clothes with you to change in the studio bathroom. Teachers will be communicating any deviance of this dress code to the management.

  • Nice T-Shirt or Tank Top - Not Too Big

  • Gym Shorts

  • Tennis Shoes

  • Dress/Jeans shorts and shirts are NOT permitted
