4SDA Dress Code

A dress code ensures that 4SDA teachers will be able to see and assess students’ alignment and positioning, while also encouraging unity, discipline, and aiding with overall focus among students. Students love wearing their color specific leotards and dance dresses! They get excited when they see the other division’s as they aspire to be like an older dancer or look back fondly at the adorable younger dancers.
