Now that you know what classes you are going to take, prepare to dress the part!!
There is value and importance in coming to class in the right attire. Many classes give freedom for expression in dress, but have some kind of guidelines. Other classes like ballet, have a stricter code due to the teacher needing to visually see the placement of the body without any bulky or distracting clothing.
There is value and importance in following dress code during a structured dance class. However, there are situations and classes that the code is less structured and more relaxed. Here are a few guidelines and reasons why coming to dance in the right attire is the first step to a great class!
Dress code helps dancers come ready for class by helping them to:
1. Understand that class has a structure, as compared to an unstructured playtime.
2. Ensures that clothing is not a distraction during class (when a dancer arrives wearing dress-up clothes like a large party dress or fairy wings this can be too much and take away focus).
3. Makes sure that your dancer is appropriately dressed for movement.
A strict dress code is not as necessary for a creative movement or Mommy and Me type classes. Dance leotards, tights, and tutus can add to the fun however, they are not required for the educational development in any introductory class. If you are a parent watching the budget, a beginning dancer can be equally successful and have has much fun during class wearing a basic pair of leggings and a t-shirt. In this case, one should set aside specific legging(s) and t-shirt(s) for dance class only. Again, the dancer is learning that these clothes are affiliated with a structured class and not just playtime.
Dress code becomes stricter and more important as the dancer gets older, especially in ballet, modern, and jazz classes. Proper attire allows the instructor to see the dancers’ alignment, positions, and movement in order to give necessary corrections that benefit the dancer’s training and education. Dress code teaches discipline, which is necessary for an art form as demanding as dance. In a traditional ballet class students will usually wear a black (or solid color) leotard and pink tights. Patterned leotards can be a distraction to the teacher. Dress code in dance classes may include shoes and your hair to be pulled back in a bun or at the least, a ponytail. Both are important for the dancer and should be adhered to.
No matter the class or style of dance your garment should be breathable, lightweight, and stretchy allowing you freedom to move while providing comfort. You can find great dance clothes at great prices at www.discountdance.com.

The Midvale facility is a 300 bed shelter that assists families, while the SLC facilitates services for adult men and women, whom have fallen upon hard times here, in the Salt Lake Valley.
The days and nights are getting colder in the valley as winter is approaching. Body Logic Dance Co. will be taking donations through out the winter holiday. We are currently taking donations of new or lightly used winter clothing/accessories along with a few other in need items. For a complete list of items needing donation visit.
”We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.”
Ballet is revered as one of the most beautiful art forms in the world. With proper training the physical grace, fluidity, and flexibility of the ballet dancer is a sight behold. Along with strength and beauty the ballet dancer learns how to carry and present themselves through their individuals lives. Here are examples of what skills can be obtained while studying ballet.

We can hardly believe it is nearly October and the holiday season will be upon us. The Company has been busy taking 3 classes and rehearsing weekly. Our choreographers are knee deep in choreographic research, creating phrases and motifs, working with time and space, and narrowing in on important subject matter.
We have taken tours of The Road Home family shelter, spoke with employees, and are learning more and more about Utah's homeless. It is important to us that we bring an awareness to this shelter newly built in Midvale and the programs they bring to our community.
By using our voices, we can influence others, using our art to broaden awareness to assist and recognize those who are suffering unfortunate circumstance during the winter season.
Join us this year in donating and attending Body Logic Dance Company's latest concert, "Without a Roof" Nov. 18, 2017 at 2pm & 7pm. Discounted tickets when bringing a new or gently used winter clothing and accessories. We are also accepting donations year-round at Body Logic Dance Studio.
To make cash donations to The Road Home go here. For a list of Autumn/Winter needs list go here.
