2020 Uniform

THE IMPORTANCE OF WEARING A UNIFORM

A uniform is an important addition to belonging to Starz Dance Centre. It creates an identity and sense of belonging both at the studio and in the public arena. Studio pride is a wonderful way for students to strive to be the best cheerleader/ dancer they can be.

It shows everyone, where they dance and they are proud to be part of the classes/ teams at our studio.

Uniforms encourage discipline. As much as dancing is enjoyable, discipline is required to ensure everyone in class receives a high standard of teaching. Uniforms are a reminder that there are rules to follow and respect.

The uniform is very practical. It enables the teachers to assist students in learning to cheer/ dance. It provides staff with the ability to see all movement when giving instruction. It prevents economic and social differences being experienced at the studio. The peer pressure to buy expensive labels is taken out. As our uniform is very affordable it keeps the price down for parents.

Wearing a uniform helps the students switch on to dancing when in class by association. It prevents them looking sloppy and untidy. A tidy outfit translates to a focused cheerleader/ dancer.

Regarding safety and recognition, the uniform enables staff to see who is new to the studio or trying out if all our students are wearing the uniform.

Parents we do ask that you assist us here. There are many reasons why a uniform is beneficial and we would really appreciate it if you made sure your child has their uniform on when coming to class. Help your child be proud to belong to Starz Dance Centre.

We have variations on the uniform to cover the different styles that we have on offer at Starz Dance Centre.
