Dress to impress! Please wear all-black dance shorts/leggings, sports bra/crop top, and jazz shoes, half shoes, dance sneakers, or barefoot. Judges will evaluate body lines and motions; loose clothing is a hindrance and disadvantage. Therefore, do not wear T-shirts, baggy pants and/or sweats.
Wear hair and make-up as you would for a game-day performance. Look the part and dress to impress. No jewelry or exposed body tattoos allowed.
