Uniform is an important part of dance, as the wrong attire can restrict movement and not allow the teacher to make proper corrections. Uniform also provides students with a sense of belonging and pride in their studio. It is essential that students at Elite Dance are correctly attired for each class.
Correct footwear is essential and needs to fit snugly. The Elite Dance uniform can be purchased at ‘Dancestuff’ in East Gosford. Or, we can organise to have it brought to either studio for you for collection.
Elite Dance also stocks various logo shirts suitable for most class wear.
Please note that jeans, school uniforms, jewellery and bulky clothing are not appropriate for dance class wear.
