Miss Heather firmly believes a dress code encourages focus, promotes a strong work ethic and boosts studio pride. Each student, depending on their class, is provided a Red Kalon T-shirt, Red ballet skirts or Red Tutu at their first class.
Students attending class at Kalon Dance Company are expected to attend every class in dress code with hair pulled securely off the face. Students attending ballet classes should have their hair in a bun. For safety we ask students not to wear jewelry or dangling earrings.
We encourage all students to bring a water bottle to class. Water is available for purchase ($1/bottle at the Front Desk)
Please ensure all items brought to the studio are clearly marked with students first name and last initial. Don't forget to label all dance slippers and shoes. Need Labels? Support Kalon by purchasing from our link at Oliver's Labels
