iStock_000050379050LargeTIDC performing arts studio maintains a dress code to encourage concentration and a sense of inclusiveness (variations in attire can be distracting and contribute to feelings of inequality). Uniformity in dancewear allows the teachers to assess how well the students are implementing the technique being taught, problems with alignment, and other important aspects of dance training. All dancewear is available from our shop located at Elizabeth, Discount Dancewear and can be ordered for Golden Grove and West Croydon students. Phone 8252 2192
