Jazz, Tap, Contemporary Dress Code

GIRL'S HAIR
 
JAZZ, TAP, LYRICAL, CONTEMPORARY

  • Dancers' hair must be neatly pulled back into a bun (or short ponytail) for all classes and secured with clips for flyaways
  • Long ponytails are not allowed as the pony hits the dancer in the face and interferes with spotting turns.
  • Short hair (chin length) must be pulled back into a half ponytail and short pieces secured with clips and/or a headband

ACRO:

  • Hair should be in a low bun; very short ponytails are allowed.  Long ponytails get in the way of spotting, get stepped on in bridges, and get pulled in partnering work and therefore are not allowed.
