RMSA Dance Attire Requirements

All dance clothes and shoes can be purchased or special ordered at our RMSA dance store. We try to keep our prices competitive with Wal-Mart and appreciate the business.

Please note: if a dancer comes to class not wearing appropriate dance clothes/shoes, they will be asked to change into dance clothes/shoes from our lost and found.

DANCE BAGS: we ask that every student has a bag/backpack/small duffel that fits their dance items and is designated JUST for dance items. Academy students are expected to bring their dance bags WITH THEM INTO every class so that shoes/items are not misplaced and everything they need is with them when they need it. Preschool/Kindergarten dancers are not expected to bring dance bags into class with them but we ask that they also do have a dance bag. Dance shoes should not be worn outside and with a designated dance bag they get use to what a dance bag is for.
