Dress Code

 

Hair is to be worn off the face and fastened in a bun. This is to protect the eyes, prevent distractions, and avoid hitting dancers behind the student.

 

Warm-up clothing is permitted during cold weather, but it needs to be ballet related warm-ups. Close fitting sweaters are permitted. Absolutely no T-shirts or colored shirts will be permitted. The more the body is hidden with clothing, the less the student can benefit from needed corrections to alignment and placement.

 

A strict dress code is followed in all classes:

 

Female students wear pink tights, pink ballet slippers and selected leotard in the color/style according to class levels, which can be found here.

 

Male students wear black tights or pants, dance belt, white T-shirt, white socks, and white (leather or canvas) or black canvas slippers.

 

Modern requires footless or convertible tights (pink or black).

 

Adult dancers are encouraged to wear a black leotard with pink tights and pink ballet slippers, but some exceptions are allowed.

 

Please NO BLACK LEATHER JAZZ OR BALLET SHOES!
