AIM students are required to adhere to a dress code for class uniformity and to insure that instructors are able to see dancers' bodies to correct alignment and technique. Many of the required dress code items are available for sale at AIM. Contact us to schedule a fitting for your dancer today.
All students are expected to have a neat and tidy appearance, with hair pulled back away from the face.
Buns are preferred for all classes, and required for all Accelerated Program Classes.
Warm-ups, shorts, ballet skirts, etc. are permitted at the instructor’s discretion and must be removed upon the instructor’s request.
