Dress Code for Special Events
For girls: For boys:
Leotards are preferred, but tight-fitting shirts, shorts, and pants that do not have zippers, buttons, ties, skirts, ruffles, or large bows are acceptable until a leotard is obtained. Shirts, shorts, and pants that do not ride up or fall down during gymnastics activities are required; compression shorts/briefs are highly recommended underneath shorts and pants. No zippers or buttons.
Shoes, socks, tights/nylons, costumes, and jewelry are not allowed in the gymnastics area.
Please bring a water bottle to all DSG classes and events. Due to building issues, we now have a water cooling machine rather than a water fountain. Thank you for your cooperation!


DSG now hosts Public Hour events for separate age-groups every* Saturday!
Public Hour gives the members of our community a no-commitment opportunity to enjoy gymnastics.
