Mommy & Me Hints
​Here are some guidelines to help you get the most out of your Mommy & Me Class.
Be prepared for class:
  • Dancers need the required dance attire: 
  • Girls:  short sleeve pink leotard, pink convertible tights, pink ballet shoes
  • Boys:  white tshirt, black pants, black ballet shoes. 
  • No skirts or tutus. 
  • Recommended Retailers are Competitor’s Closet and LaBrie Dance. 
  • Parents should wear comfortable clothes, no shoes in the dance studio.  Parents can wear socks.
  • Pull your dancer's hair away from their face and off their neck.
  • Arrive to the studio at least 5 minutes before class starts so that your dancer can get acclimated, put shoes on, get settled in!
  • Put your dancer’s ballet shoes on before they enter class.

Not allowed in class:
  • Snacks or Drinks (Class time goes by very quickly!)
  • Sweatshirts, leg warmers or any additional clothing (We keep the temperature appropriate to the season.)
  • Ballet skirt or tutus (It can be very distracting in class.)  Skirts attached to leotards are also not allowed.
  • Toys or dolls
  • Gum
  • Extra jewelry
  • Pacifiers

To uphold the integrity of our dance education, Mommy & Me classes require 1 adult per dancer.  If you have multiple children, another adult must participate per child. Can be dad, auntie, uncle, grandma, etc.!  No other adults or siblings allowed in dance room.
Get ready for a wonderful experience at the Carolyn Dutra Dance Studio!
