NSB Dress Code

All students must follow the required dress code below, both at the studio and at home during virtual learning. We believe that adding the opportunity for students to self-identify their gender helps us to better understand and serve our student population. 

We are pleased to share several dance supply stores that are carrying our dress code items. Please call stores in advance to see if they have your size in stock.
