BRAVO Center Dress Code & Shoes

Coming prepared and dressed for class is a part of

the disciple of dance. It prepares you in many ways.

  1. It gets you thinking about class and puts you in the right frame of mind BEFORE you come to the studio.

  2. It trains you to have all your dance items together and organized in preparation for performances.

  3. Keeping your hair out of your face allows you to spot during turns and tricks

  4. Proper shoe wear and dance wear allow you to move in the ways you need to and allow your teacher to see how your body is aligned.

Below are the guidelines you must follow in order to participate in class:

  • Face masks are optional and may be worn if the dancer prefers.

  • Dancers must arrive prepared/dressed for dance class. There will be no changing upon arrival or between classes.

  • Shoes are the responsibility of the dancer to purchase and maintain. Teachers will make specific shoe requests known the first week of class.

    • Parents/Guardians, please keep in mind your student's abilities when choosing slip-on, tie or buckled shoes. Dancers are responsible for putting on their own shoes. ​

  • ​Students need to bring their own water bottle to class.

  • Parents/Guardians, please make sure your student's name is written somewhere on their dance shoes and water bottle.

  • Instructors reserve the right to make adjustments to set guidelines at their discretion.

  • Dress code will be enforced the 4th week of classes.

  • Note- sweaters, sweatshirts and dance jackets may be used during warm-ups only

Ideally we would like you to have these items available to your student prior to the first day of class. If you have any further questions, please address them to your dance teacher as they may have specific request.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Recommendations for Pointe Shoes


Students who are taking Intermediate or Advanced Pointe should get pointe shoes properly fitted for their feet. Unlike other dance shoes, pointe shoes should not be purchased simply based on standard shoe size. For safety and a proper fit, we recommend families make an appointment to have their dancer's pointe shoes properly sized and fitted. Please do not order pointe shoes offline without knowing your preferred brand, size and style.

These are two locations in Madison that offer pointe shoe fittings, and are great resources for help with pointe shoes. Please reach out to your pointe instructor if you have any questions.
