We encourage students to sign up with a “partner” on their registration form. If you do not have a partner, its does not mean that the student will not be enrolled, as many sign up without partners. Our goal is to balance the number of boys and girls in the class.
Girls: Party dresses or a blouse and skirt, white gloves, dress shoes (no high heels or platform shoes).
Boys: Dark suit or sports jacket, dress shirt and tie, dark shoes and socks (no sneakers).
