All clients must read and adhere to the guidelines mandated by GDS which are published in the official Goddess Dance Studio™ Handbook. Upon registration, Handbooks are available for clients at the reception desk. These guidelines are set in place to help ensure that everyone (both customers and staff) have the best atmosphere to dance in as possible.
Dress Code Policy
Solid colored tank tops with no printed patterns with solid black bottoms.
Another option includes wearing the Goddess Dance™ Pole Meet Uniforms.
High Heel Dance Shoes, Ballet Slippers, Sneakers or Socks
Acro Pole Dancing Classes are encouraged to wear solid color sports bras and dance shorts. Ballet pole dancing class requires a black leotard, tutu (your choice in colors) & ballet slippers.
We enforce a pole dancing class dress code because it is a means of identifying ourselves openly with the principles to which we are committed-character development, aerial training, and physical and mental understanding of pole. Safety and building confidence is paramount at GDS.

No refunds nor exchanges on merchandise nor Photo Shoots. Photo Sessions are nontransferable. All Sales Final.
