Dance Attire

Back to Class Information

All dancers must be in proper uniform by October. Dance uniforms consist of black leotard with pink tights. Ballet shoes are to be pink, taps are to be black and tan jazz shoes. Boys wear black shorts or jazz pants with a white t-shirt, black ballets (or black jazz shoes) and black tap shoes.

Hip hop students are required to wear black leotard, black pants and black hip hop shoes.

Tumbling shoes, tutu's, ballet skirts, Mar Ray Dancer shorts, belts, dance sweaters and leg warmers are all optional attire. It is necessary for the student to be conscience of their posture by watching themself dance in the mirror. Therefore, absolutely no large t-shirts or sweatshirts are to be worn over their leotard.

All students should keep their shoes in a tote bag to keep them together for class. This bag is to only be used for dance shoes and attire. No food, drinks or toys should be in the bags.

All dancers should mark their names in their shoes and bag especially in the event there is more than one of the same bag in a class. Please mark tap shoes on the sole of the foot with masking tape so we can remove the tape when trading in shoes for a larger size. We do not take trade-in's on ballet shoes, therefore you can write the students name on the inside of the ballets and the inside of the dance bag.

We sell used tap shoes or take in used tap shoes for our Mar Ray students only. The used taps must be originally purchased at Mar Ray; Leo's, Bloch or Capezio brands. Our Mar Ray students also receive a 10% discount on the basic uniform for class (black leotard, pink tights, new tap shoes, pink ballet shoes, jazz shoes and hip hop shoes). This does not include skirts, dance bags, Mar Ray clothing, gifts, etc.

The first lesson of every month is "any color day". Dance students may wear any color or style dance attire to class. They may also wear past recital consumes if they will not interfere with class. NO STREET CLOTHES.

Mar Ray Dance Studio is located at:
3923 West Main Street next to Plum Garden Resturant in McHenry, Illinois
