Getting Started


New Students

There are a few requirements before joining our dancing school. 

Potential students must: 

  • Be potty-trained 
  • Be able to consistently hop on one foot
  • Have previous experience in a classroom setting of some kind. 

If you have a very young dancer, we recommend a basic ballet and movement class to get them used to both being in a dance class environment and learning to move. 

For older dancers, no dance experience is specifically required. 

Dance Class Required Items

For the first few classes, dancers need: 

  • A water bottle
  • Knee socks
  • Scottish dancing ghillies OR black ballet shoes
  • A leotard or tight top, so body alignment is clear
  • Hair off the face, preferably in a bun

 Generally, if the dancer has a "uniform" to wear to dance class, they will feel more professional and mentally focused. Ideally, this is designed to be free of distractions and help the dancer's technique.  

For an easy way to purchase any needed items, please check out our online store at Discount Dance:
