At Formations, we desire to give our students an understanding of proper technique and injury prevention as well as a knowledgeable dance vocabulary.
We preserve an environment for dance that is APPROPRIATE. For this reason, music is edited as needed to keep lyrics clean. Students are required to wear a leotard and leggings (or tights) for every class. Additionally, recital and competition costumes are carefully picked with modesty in mind.
