Martha Graham

“Freedom to a dancer means discipline. That is what technique is for – liberation.”

 

2022-2023 DRESS CODE

At Elevation Academy a dress code is enforced to teach dancers respect for the discipline of dance and to bring attention to safety and performance. Proper dance attire allows teachers and dancers to more effectively evaluate alignment and placement and enhances movement capabilities. Please see the descriptions below for each dance style.


Required items can be purchased through our online dance wear store at the link below. Optional items are also available for purchase through our online dance wear store!


Please contact the studio if your dancer needs to be fitted for dance wear or shoes prior to ordering.
