When attending dance class it is important to wear the correct attire and shoes to ensure that you get the most out of your class. It is expected that all students comply with the uniform requirements as it promotes team unity and equality, allows free movement without restrictions and reduces the risk of injury. Term 1 will be seen as a grace period to give families the time to find and purchase their shoes and attire. Uniform will be enforced as of Week 1, Term 2. MSF encourage you to check out Energetiks Factory Outlet, Target, Kmart, Best and Less and Ebay for less expensive options.
