what to wear.

At Fierce, we pride ourselves on inclusivity, and promote and encourage dancers to feel comfortable and confident in themselves. We are one of the only studios in the region without a dress code! We allow dancers to wear any type of dance clothes for all classes with the exception of Ballet.  This allows dancers to feel confident and comfortable in themselves, and helps promote positive body image. 


Check out our list below for suggestions on what to wear, what shoes your dancer will need, and more information regarding what to wear for each class!
