Additional Information

In the proud tradition of classical ballet and out of respect for the art form, we strive to have a clean, uniformed look for our students in all of our dance classes. Please help us achieve this goal by purchasing leotards, tights, and ballet shoes that match our dress code requirements and by preparing your child’s hair for class in the appropriate manner as listed. 

  • Dancers should appear neat at all times.

  • Dance apparel with holes should be repaired immediately.

  • Student’s name should be on ALL dancewear, especially shoes. 

  • Elastics must be sewn on all ballet shoes (some shoes come pre-sewn). 

  • Drawstrings need to be tucked into shoes.

  • No safety pins allowed. 

  • Split-soled ballet shoes are preferred for all students in Ballet 2 and higher. (leather or canvas). 

  • Students of any age should always wear street clothing over their ballet attire when coming to and from their classes.

  • Ballet shoes must never be worn outdoors as this tracks dirt into the studio and is detrimental to the marley floors as well as dangerous for the students.

  • No jewelry allowed except small earrings and rings.

  • During the winter, a tight fitting dance sweater or leg warmers will be allowed for the first three combinations.

 

Hair

Hair for ballet should be worn back in a classical bun with a hair net or bun cover and secured with bobby pins.  Do not pull the hair through a pony tail holder or securing it only with a doubled over scrunchies to look like a bun. If a student has hair that is cut too short to pull into a ponytail she should use a headband to keep hair off face. For pre-ballet, tap, jazz, modern, physical theatre, and conditioning a neat ponytail or bun is needed.
