Students must attend classes in suitable attire. Wearing suitable attire in class is important for student safety as it ensures the teacher can clearly see how students are working, and whether the correct muscles are being used.

Dress Code & Uniform Requirements

Bom Funk Dance Studio maintains a dress code to encourage concentration and a sense of inclusiveness (variations in attire can be distracting and contribute to feelings of inequality). Uniformity in dancewear allows the teachers to assess how well the students are implementing the technique being taught, problems with alignment, and other important aspects of dance training. Bom Funk Dance Studio is gradually implementing a compulsory uniform in 2017. Most students will be required to wear various uniform items for the Mid-Year Display performance while costumes will be worn for the End-of-Year Showcase performance.  

  • The main studio colours are Royal Blue and Red (with Yellow, Black & White). If you are unable to wear the recommended Bom Funk Uniform to class, we encourage students to wear attire in these colours. Teachers are able to focus on body alignment when students wear similar attire and it makes ‘cleaning’ much easier. 
  • No denim or non-stretch fabrics should be worn in class unless.
  • Students should carry their dancewear, shoes, and other belongings in a dance bag. Please print your child’s name on the bag as well as on all of its contents.
  • Dancewear is to be kept in good repair and laundered on a regular basis.
  • Watches, dangling or chunky jewellery should not be worn to class for safety reasons.
  • Dance shoes should never be worn outside with the exception of Hip Hop shoes (please make sure these are clean before entering the room).
  • Female students should wear their hair tightly secured and styled away from the face; a neat bun, braid or high pony tail is recommend.
  • Students are expected to observe good personal hygiene habits. Deodorant is required for students age 10 and older. Please respect those with asthma and spray outside or away from others.
