Uniform/dress code

All orders are ONLINE ONLY (link above).  We are unable to place orders through the studio.

Our Online Boutique has been set up for you to order from/deliver to your home with all accurate sizing instructions/directions online that work if followed correctly, however, if you wish to come in person to be fitted, you may make an appointment HERE. We are a Revolution Dancewear authorized retailer that caries high-quality shoes, tights, leotards, and other dancewear items below the cost of retail prices. Our shoe prices are comparable to dance shoes you can find elsewhere, but are of a much higher quality. All class specific uniforms/dress code items are REQUIRED (Dance w/Me items are optional but suggested). 

  • Our vendor (Revolution) sizing sizing chart shows sizes 8C-13C ("C" stands for child/little kid) and 1A-13 ("A" stands for adult/big kid).

  • For SHOES, we recommend going 3 sizes up for BALLET & JAZZ shoes, and 2 sizes up for hip-hop & tap shoes. For example, if 3-year old Emma wears a little kid size 7 street shoe, you would order a size 10C ballet & a size 9C tap shoe. If 10-year old Sophie wears a big kid size 4 street shoe, she would get a size 7A ballet/jazz shoe, and a size 6A hip-hop & tap shoe. If you would prefer to get fitted in person, at the studio, an appointment may be made HERE.

  • If any sizes are out of stock/arriving late, try ordering 1/2-1 size bigger.

  • All info (tracking, ETA) will be sent to you/available in your Nimbly account, and questions can be directed to their office.

 

If you are unable to receive your dresscode items prior to your first class, please dress similarly/comfortably and bring clean socks for all classes except Hip-Hop. For Hip-Hop, please bring CLEAN, (not worn on your way to the studio) sneakers that can be put on inside.

Why a dress code?

  • A dress code is standard at most accomplished dance institutions.

  • It allows teachers and dancers to see proper alignment of shoulders, center, back, hips, knees, and ankles resulting in proper teaching and execution of technique.

  • A dress code creates uniformity in class, and is part of the discipline of dance.

  • Learning to dance and work together as a team can be more easily achieved by removing the distraction of different dancewear.

  • Like martial arts, the different colors (and styles), represent growth to the next level of dance which give dancers a goal they can strive to attain.

  • Outside of our annual recital, SFK is sometimes offered performance opportunities in our community. Our uniform dresscode allows for us to be performance ready throughout the year. 

  • If you already have shoes prior to starting at SFK, you may wear them, but, our particular brand/color/style must be purchased, and arrive, prior to our annual recital. 

The following must NOT be worn in any class, at any time:

  • Jeans, skirts, dresses, school or play clothes.

  • Jewelry (including watches or fitbits). Stud/small earrings okay. 

  • Satin ballet slippers or patent leather tie tap shoes.

  • Shoes that have been worn outside. 

  • Underwear with leotards (that is why we wear tights).

HAIR:

  • Must pulled back and away from the face in a ponytail, braid, or bun. (All Classes)

  • A bun is preferred for Mini Ballet and required for Jr, Elite, Teen Ballet and Pre-Pointe.
