As a matter of etiquette, and to demonstrate respect for the art of dance, we ask students to please wear shirt and pants (or a skirt) over their leotard and tights when arriving and departing the studio.
Arrive ready for class or you may dress in the bathroom/locker rooms. Lockers are available at the Creative Art Studios to store your clothes during class. Locks are not provided.
Please do not wear jewelry to class. It may injure the dancer, instructor, or fellow classmates. If your student just got their ears pierced, please let the instructor know.
All students’ hair must be pulled back and secured away from their face and neck, preferably in a ponytail or bun. All students in Ballet 1 and above must wear their hair in a bun. If your child is unsure of how to put their hair in a bun, please speak with instructor.
Dance Apparel and Fittings
The Schauer School of Dance offers attire/shoes through its distributor REVOLUTION Dance. Please note that attire and shoes are used in our showcase and performance events as costume pieces, so it is important to use our distributor in order to maintain a cohesive look. All fittings are by appointment only. Please call 262-670-0560, ext. 204 to schedule your appointment. Group orders take place at the beginning of each semester and prior to the May showcase. Orders placed outside of the group order time-frame, may be subject to an additional fee for shipping and handling fees.
Used Dance Apparel
We accept donations of gently used shoes and leotards, which is then re-sold to families for a reduced price. Proceeds benefit the Schauer School of Arts financial assistance program – Education & Inspiration Fund. All families who donate will receive a letter recognizing their donation for tax purposes. Apparel must be clearly marked with size to be accepted. Please call 262-670-0560, ext. 204 if you are interested in purchasing or donating used apparel.
