The Dress Code at SMASH Dance Academy is set up to help our dancers have a positive experience, to facilitate proper training and safety by allowing the teachers to adequately view dancer's alignment and placement, and to encourage proper and focused classroom etiquette. Dancers who arrive to class without the proper Dress Code will be asked to adjust their attire or hair to align with the Dress Code before joining class. Students must adhere to the Dress Code by coming prepared to class.
