Dress Code

At Arts In Motion our priority is to instruct your child in proper dance techniques. It is not our intention for our dress code to exclude anyone from taking class. Our dress code assures freedom of movement and proper foot protection. We also coordinate our dress code with major university dance programs as well as Joffrey Ballet and Ailey Dance in New York.
