Dress Code 

All students at Teknique must follow a dress code. This is necessary as instructors need to clearly see the dancer's movements with her/his body. This is not only to ensure they are doing the step properly, but more importantly to avoid injury. We have also issued a separate form indicating the shoes to be worn for each dance style (specific to the class and age of the child). Please be sure to have the proper shoes by the end of September. If the wrong shoes are bought, you will be asked to return them and purchase the proper one for the class. (Please no lace up shoes.)

We do have Studio appropriate clothing for sale and that can be ordered. (On pause due to COVID-19)

All Mini and Petite students are welcome to wear a bodysuit, skirt, tights or socks.

Absolutely no jeans or pants are to be worn in any class.
No gum, food or candy is permitted into the studios and any other drinks but water bottles.
All classes require the student's hair to be neatly tied back into a bun or a ponytail.

Costumes (On Pause Due to COVID-19)

Most costumes are within an average price range of $75.00 to $95.00 (flexible due to the price of fabric and exchange rates). We offer fundraisers to help offset the cost. We also include proper tights in with the costume balance. Every effort is made to keep the prices of costumes to a minimum.

A costume deposit (per class) of $35.00 will be made for all primary classes (ages 2-10 years) and a deposit of $40.00 for intermediate classes (ages 11 years and up).

Please Note: A non-refundable costume deposit (after September 30th) is required at time of registration.

Competitions (On Pause Due to COVID-19)

All students who are eligible to compete, must fulfill the following two requirements:

  • must enroll in a minimum of one ballet class a week (regardless of the method they have chosen to compete with)

  • must also be enrolled in a stretch and strength class


All students will attend their regular scheduled classes as well as their competitive classes.

The Director will approach your son/daughter if he/she is capable in participating in any competitions.

The studio will make the final decisions on the competitions that students are capable of competing in. You will be asked to sign a contract committing yourself to the rules. You will also be asked to purchase jewelry and make-up kits.
