tights and black leotards. Hair should be secured in a bun and off the face.
Leather pink ballet slippers are required for performances. Sheer black chiffon
skirts may be worn during center floor only. No other skirts or leg warmers
may be worn during class as they impair the teacher's ability to see and make
necessary corrections in technique.

or black stretch pants with a solid color tee shirt, white socks and black
shoes. An athletic supporter should be worn.
Female jazz students may wear any color
tights and leotards. Leggings and tee shirts are acceptable. Do not wear baggy
shirts or baggy pants as they inhibit visibility of body form which is needed
to make necessary corrections of technique. Any jazz oxford or slip on shoe
may be worn but not jazz sneakers.
Male jazz students may wear any exercise pants
with a tee shirt. They should be lightweight and stretchy to allow freedom
of movement. An athletic supporter should be worn. Any jazz oxfords may be
worn but no jazz sneakers.

No street clothes should be worn. Wear lightweight cotton
or nylon clothing. Men's tap oxfords with Capezio Master
