Class Attire

Why does Mayama require dance attire? We believe that proper dance attire helps our students arrive fully to their dance class. Clothed for movement and safety is important to us and aids in students showing up to class feeling ready and prepared.

IF YOUR CHILD COMES DIRECTLY FROM SCHOOL TO THE STUDIO THEY NEED A SNACK!

We want to emphasize the importance of the proper attire for each style of dance.
Having the proper uniform ensures safety, minimizes distraction, and helps
create uniformity in the class, and finally, it aids in each student’s ability to arrive
as a dancer. Thank you in advance for helping us create a fun and professional
dance studio.
