Importance of uniform in dance:

A uniform is an indicator of belonging to a team, but it also offers a variety of other benefits for both the students and teachers in dance class.

Wearing a uniform ensures dancers are dressed correctly to allow teachers to see the alignment of their bodies while dancing and also ensures their attire is safe and practical for dancing! The uniform puts dancers in the right mindset for class, wearing loose clothes or street clothes can be unsafe and inhibit the ability to properly participate in class.

‘Looking the part’ of a dancer improves confidence and helps students feel a sense of equality and reliability to others. Uniforms also eliminate any distractions about what others are wearing and help students to focus more in class
