ACHEV Dress Code for Dances
The text of the dress code is below. Please also view the attached dress code enhanced with pictures. It has clear illustration of the minimum hemline as well as examples for semi-formal wear.
In our desire to honor the Lord in all we say and do, which includes how we dress and present ourselves, ACHEV would like to set forth a dress code for our dances which focuses on modesty and practicality. We have taken into consideration that many dance steps are vigorous with girls twirling or being flipped upside down. Students arriving at dances without proper attire will be asked to call a parent to bring them suitable clothing or return home to change. Please be gracious in accepting the decision of the person in charge.
- Collared shirts
- Skirts or dresses knee length or longer. (This means touching the top of the knee, regardless of leggings.)
- If there is a lace overlay, the skirt underneath (solid fabric) needs to touch the knee.
- Leggings or shorts are required if the skirt rises past the knees while twirling.
- No low-cut, strapless, backless, or halter tops. Straps need to be at least one inch wide. No exposed cleavage or bra straps.
- No pants.
A Word About ACHEV Dances in General
ACHEV dances are for students who are 6th grade and older, including graduates. The ACHEV dress code for dances applies with exceptions noted for individual dances as needed. It is your responsibility to carefully read dance notices to be sure your students are prepared. Over the years it has become apparent that we need this check to make sure guests understand the dress code, basic rules, dance etiquette, etc. before arriving at the dances, and to ensure the dances remain comfortable and safe for everyone attending.
