Our dress code is designed to encourage unity and discipline among our students. Do not send your child to to dance in their school clothing. Write your dancer’s name on all personal items of clothing, costumes, shoes, dance bags, etc. A shoe fitting and dance wear event will take place at GDDS prior to the start of the 2021-2022 dance school year.

Grayce DeWitt Dance Studio is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Lockers are available for dancers that are intended for day-use only. However, any dancer wishing to keep their frequently used items secured in a locker overnight and throughout the week may rent a unit for a small monthly fee. A limited number of lockers will be available to rent. If interested, please contact Mrs. Rebecca at graycedewitt@yahoo.com
