2019 Dress Code

 
 

At Vital Movement Studios we believe that wearing studio uniforms give students a sense of belonging to our family as well as creating an identity for our studio in the greater community.

Our uniforms also:
Encourage discipline
Help students resist peer pressure to buy stylish clothes for class
Help identify non-students in the studio
Diminish economic and social barriers between students
Increase a sense of belonging and school pride
Allow teachers to properly assess and correct technique

VMS Clothing

Samples of our customised Vital Movement Studios merchandise is on display in the foyer and available to try on for size. We hold some stock on hand for immediate sale and will also place an order in Term 1 and 2.

VMS jackets can be worn to class in winter whilst warming up. Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop and Contemporary students can VMS crop-tops, t-shirts or singlets to class as long as they are form fitting. No VMS clothing is permitted for Ballet classes, students must be dressed in the correct leotard and skirt.  

Please see Donna or Molly at reception during office hours in regards to VMS merchandise. 


Please ensure all parts of your child’s uniform are clearly labelled - individual shoes, socks, drink bottles... you’ll be amazed at the amount of lost property we generate!

We have listed preferred brands below as part of the 2019 dress code, but you can purchase equivalent styles from other dance wear brands.
