HVT Studio of Performing Arts Uniform Requirements for 2015.

When beginning a dance class the dancer must purchase the proper attire. Many are confused as to why dance studios enforce such strict dress codes. The dress code that HVT Studio of Performing Arts implements is really for the benefit of the dancer. Dress codes ensure that the instructor can see the dancer’s body and verify that they have the correct alignment and posture. The pink tights make the lines of the legs visible. Loose and baggy clothing hide mistakes and bad posture. When all of our dancers are following a dress code they can be more focused. Dancing is a discipline and must be respected as such. Following a dress code teaches focus and discipline. For many dancers, putting on the leotard helps them get into the mind frame needed to practice. the dancers are effectively “dressing the part.” Dress codes also create unity among the dancers. No one dancer can stand out more than another. Many beginners take comfort in knowing that there is no stress about what to wear to class. Every dancer has a chance to sparkle because of their skill not their attire. When students are dressed alike, it’s easier for a teacher to spot someone out of form or behind the count. Dancers wear their hair pulled back so they have a full range of sight while performing.

"Congratulations to all involved. Fabulous show. Even better than last year. Emma absolutely had a blast & is so so so proud & excited to have won a trophy."
"A fantastic concert! Well done Kristy and all of the teachers.. Everyone danced beautifully and looked amazing. Jemma started playing "concerts" as soon as we got home! We are so proud of her and her "most improved award" Thank you!"
"HVT is like a second home to me. I have been dancing at HVT since I was 3 and I still love going to dance classes each week. The teachers there make the dance classes fun and enjoyable to be in and there is never a dull moment. Kristy is a great teacher because she has given me the confidence to get up on stage and dance and sing. Kristy has also made me see a whole new side to dancing, and this has made me achieve great things.Thank you for everything you have taught me and the opportunities you have given me."
"I just wanted to start by saying that this is the fourth dance school we have tried in the area over the years and it is where we will be staying (even when we move 40 min further away). Your teachers are wonderful, the technical training and opportunities you provide are unmatched by any other dance school I've encountered, your communication is great and the general vibe of the HVT family is warm, welcoming and supportive. I suspect my girls will be HVT dancers into their adulthood :)"
"What a great concert. Well done to all involved in such a huge project. It was great seeing grandparents having tears in their eyes after each performance. Well done Miss Kristy for amazing work you have done all year. See you all in 2015."
Thank you Kristy for your dedication , direction and instruction in the art of dance at HVT Performing Arts. In selecting HVT Studio of Performing Arts, I anticipated high standards and the discipline of dance to be a priority. We made the right choice. Every session has been skillfully planned and conducted to maximize time. We could not have foreseen the opportunities for our young dancer that would come from being in an environment that exposes her to the broad spectrum of dancers, performances, and passion of dance that HVT offers. The 14 years of instruction have exceeded our expectations in terms of acquiring knowledge and skills in tap and ballet; to enable our dancer to realize her dream to dance professionally and internationally. Thank you for opening the door to this rich cultural experience.
First, I want to thank you for everything you have given me, from my first tap and ballet class to experience on stage performance through eisteddfods and concerts. I can’t thank you enough. You have been a second mother to me, helping me develop and grow as a dancer and person. You’ve taught me self-discipline, how to set goals for myself, and go after my dreams. I don’t think I would have known which direction to take without dance in my life. In addition, HVT Studio of Performing Arts (and you Kristy) have given me so many opportunities and memories. I really enjoyed attending every class and workshop. It gave me a whole new outlook on dance and allowed me to put dancing to the test…Now I have the chance to live my dream dancing professionally and internationally with new and exciting opportunities ,everyday not to mention meeting the most amazing people that dance has bought into my life. As I head off on my next dancing adventure these experiences with you will guide and support me wherever life takes me.
We are so happy to finally find a dance school where the emphasis is on quality teaching with qualified professionals. My daughter has really enjoyed her lessons at HVT and her confidence has developed a lot with your classes. Thank you for always keeping us updated, it was great not having to chase up dates and times for events. We are sorry to have to leave you as we move interstate.
Kristy…..wow you guys did such an amazing job!!! Was fantastic and am proud to say that my girls are part of the HVT family.
