Dress Code

What to wear

At DCM, we believe that having a Dress Code gives students a sense of belonging to our family as well as creating an identity for our studio in the greater community.

Our Dress Code 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
• Improve attendance

Uniforms can be purchased from our parent portal or at the studio (subject to stock). View our DCM gear here 

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