Studio Rules & Policies

Dress Code

Please note that students are expected to wear appropriate and standard attire for all classes. The dress code at En Pointe Dance & Acrobatics will be strictly enforced. Our dress code is important for instructors to be able to see students' alignment to ensure they are moving properly and to prevent injury. Our staff reserves the right to dismiss a student from class if they are not in proper attire or ask for a student to remove/change an article of clothing if they feel it does not follow our Studio's Dress Code. Most items can be purchased in our studio's store. Please follow our Studio's Dress Code provided below for each class.
