Appropriate Shoes, Slippers, Leotards, Tights, Tops & Bottoms
With over 40 years of experience in the dance, cheer and tumbling industry, we know why quality tap shoes, gymnastics apparel and dance slippers are so important.  Justas in every other sport, wearing appropriate attire is vital to your experience.  This is why we have a strict dress code that must be adhered to.  After a warning has been given, the student will be sent home with a copy of said dress code and instructions to obtain the correct ballet slippers, unitard, cheerleading apparel or whatever is needed for that specific class.  Failure to do so will result in two warnings, which will then cause the student to miss class without the possibility of make-up classes.
At the Dance Refinery, we strive to keep our standards high in all areas, Including our dancers' apparel.  Our clothing requirements for each class are as follows:
  • Street clothes may not be worn for any class.
