Dancers are required to wear a bun and a black bodysuit for Ballet, and a black bodysuit with black shorts/leggings for Jazz/Contemporary. Dance Co uniform is expected for current Dance Co students.
Please register for auditions as early as possible with the Dance Co office. Early pre-registration allows us to be more organized, making us just as prepared to see you dance, as you are to audition for us!
