Dress Code


At Grooves Unlimited, we like to embrace a “no dress code” type of dress code. Why? Because Street Dance Culture is all about embracing the style of the individual! That being said, we do have a few requirements, so it’s time to gear up like a Groover with our dress code:


Groovers must abide by the dress code, and if not prepared with appropriate clothing and footwear, they will be asked to sit and observe class.



Groovers should wear athletic and moveable pants like sweatpants, leggings or yoga pants. For Tap classes, we ask that they cut above the ankle so we can see their footwork. For TLC, we strongly recommend leggings or yoga pants that are tight enough to show form. Jeans, Jeggings or Denim Shorts are not allowed.


Groovers should wear a shirt that is tight enough to show form.


Groovers are encouraged to wear their Grooves gear, including Grooves hoodies, t-shirts, sweatpants, and company attire.


Hair must be pulled back with a hair tie and out of the face for all classes.


For the safety of your Groover, jewelry is not permitted with the exception of stud earrings (no hoops or dangling earrings). No bracelets or necklaces.
