We are so excited to have you join us in class!  Wearing appropriate attire and footwear is an important part of being a dancer. Proper attire allows our instructors to visually see how a dancers body moves and can also help engage the students sense of body awareness.  Proper footwear allows everyone to learn and progress in class without discomfort or delay!  Read on for an outline of WHAT TO WEAR at Dance Magic Studio!
