What to wear

CLASS ATTIRE

Dancers should wear MT attire to class, including any MT top, and black MT skort or shorts, poodle socks, and dance shoes. We have a variety of shorts, t shirts and athletic clothing available at the studio, which are all acceptable for class. We've found that dancers are more focused and comfortable when all wearing MT attire in class. 

This policy was put in place as well to eliminate peer pressure due to trendy brands, but, most importantly, we want our students to feel a sense of belonging to a group. We may dance as individuals, but MT stands together as one team. 

BLACK OUT/BLACK & WHITE FEIS GUIDELINES

Many Sunday feisanna are “Black Out” or “Black & White” Feises. The syllabus will note on the info page if it is Black Out/Black & White. This is an opportunity for dancers to dance in a more simple and comfortable costume. (This becomes more appreciated in the higher levels.)
