Attire & Shoe Requirements


This is an important aspect of dance. Hair must be up in a ponytail or bun and off the neck for all classes. Please ensure that this is done before class.

Proper Dance Clothing:

A bodysuit and tights are mandatory to be worn to all classes. We ask that students do not wear costumes from previous years to class as this is a distraction. Older students may wear tight fitting dance shorts over their bodysuit. In chilly weather a sweater or hoodie may be worn for the beginning of class. Please follow these requirements so to allow your child to understand the importance of being properly prepared for their class. Dress code requirements are chosen for instructional and safety reasons. Generally, clothing is form fitting so that the instructor can see the student's placement of posture and movements.

Boy's Hip Hop Crew:

Dancers are required to wear jeans or sweats and a t-shirt. Runners must be indoor and non-marking.

Shoe Requirements:

Each class will have specific shoes that will be needed in each form of dance. The brand and color of shoes all must be the same. Proper fitting shoes are extremely important to your child's comfort while concentrating on their dance classes. If you have any questions about shoe inquiries please direct them to your child's instructor.

The White City Dancing School will be making a change from black shoes to tan throughout the dance season. You are required to have tan shoes by competition and recital time but due to the high demand, plan to have them purchased for the end of December.

To make finding the right dance shoes for your child, a list of shoe requirements has been sent to Dancer's Den in Regina. Let them know that you are with the White City Dancing School and they will make sure you have what is needed. Below is pictures of the shoes that are required. Please ask your instructor as to which shoes you are required to have.
