What To Wear
At YOU CAN DANCE we firmly believe that wearing studio uniforms gives our students a sense of belonging to our YCD family as well as creating an identity for our studio in the greater community.
Just trialling classes? If your child is a new student trialing classes they will not require a uniform until they have enrolled. Just make sure they are in comfortable clothing that allows full range of movement for their trial classes.
WHY WEARING UNIFORM TO CLASS IS IMPORTANT?
- Encourages discipline;
- Helps students resist peer pressure to buy stylish clothes for class;
- Wearing a uniform brings a strong feeling of equality;
- Diminishes economic and social barriers between students;
- Increases a true sense of belonging and school pride;
- Improves attendance;
WE HAVE LOTS OF UNIFORM OPTIONS TO ENSURE EVERYONE FEELS COMFORTABLE & CONFIDENT!
