    Hair: If long, it must be pulled back into a ponytail and pinned securely away from the dancer's face and neck. If short, it too must be tied or pinned back. Bangs, hanging or loose curly hair styles are not allowed. As dancers are learning movement, hair should not be a hinderance to their being able to move freely without distraction.

    Nails:  Should be kept neat and clipped---no long nails or nail art is acceptable in the dance classroom, as it is dangerous and distracting.
