Markell School of Dance Dress Requirements

All dancers are required to wear appropriate clothing into and around the building. This includes a cover-up for dancers of all ages and proper footwear. Dance shoes (including sneakers worn for Hip Hop classes) should never be worn outside.

Hair
All young ladies must wear their hair in a bun. If a female dancer’s hair is shorter than chin length, a headband may be worn. Bangs and “whispies” should be controlled with hairspray, gel, and/or barrettes, as needed.
All male dancers must have their hair out of their face. If a male dancer’s hair is longer than chin length, it must be worn in a low, tight pony tail.

Jewelry
No jewelry is permitted with the exception of small stud earrings. Any other type of jewelry (necklaces, bracelets, anklets, etc.) could be a hazard or distraction while dancing.

Shoes for Sale
The Markell School of Dance has gently used jazz and tap shoes for sale. Contact Jenni Nettleton, the director of the Markell School of Dance, for details.
