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 their 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 purchased, you will be asked to return them and purchase the proper style for the specific class. (Please no lace-up shoes.)

We do have Studio appropriate clothing for sale and that can be ordered. 

All Mini and Cutie 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 except for water bottles.
All classes require the student's hair to be neatly tied back into a bun or a ponytail.

Any bodysuit, tights or ankle socks. Skirts may be worn in class. Hair in a bun.

Any bodysuit, crop top and dance shorts, no tights or socks. Hair in a braid. T-shirts and/or pants are NOT permitted.

Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Lyrical, and Musical Theatre
Dance crop top, bodysuit, dance shorts. Hair in a bun or ponytail. No pants.



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 30) is required at time of registration.


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 the dancer if they are 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 jewellery and make-up kits.
