NSB Dress Code
School Year

We will be participating in a new dress code provided by Dance This Way, of Concord, MA for the 2024-2025 School Year. *Please note that this dress code does not apply to the 2024 Summer Programs.


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

Please place your orders with Dance This Way.
