What To Wear

Below you will find the colors for your dancer’s class level and the basic dance wear they will need.  A Dress Code has been posted on Discount Dance Supply.  Go to the upper right and click on students.  You will find our fall session dress code and be able to shop using that.  It may be easier to shop for similar items from Amazon as we are having issues with Discount Dance sometimes.  You can also check Bloch.com

All students must wear appropriate undergarments as needed based on age/ gender/ development. It is highly recommended that all female students purchase an “undertard” (my name) to wear under costumes which might be itchy. All bras and undies must be in a nude/ skin tone and not visible outside of leotards.
All character shoes and skirts are provided by the studio.

Please let your dancer’s teacher know if purchase expenses are out of your budget and we will do our best to make needed items available. We have a small selection of laundered “hand me downs” available and encourage the sharing of dance wear that your child may have outgrown.

Grooming
Please be sure that you/ your dancer is groomed appropriately for ballet class.
Females: long hair must be neatly pulled back from the face, pre-primary levels and above must have hair in a bun, or short hair well clipped back, bangs off of forehead. Do not use a plastic headband as they fall off. Buns must be properly secured with hairpins and hairnet, NOT with a hair tie or scrunchy!Males: Hair must be neatly groomed off of the face, use gel if needed

Jewelry is not permitted for class or performances. The exception is small stud earrings for class if desired.

Appropriate make up will be needed for performances, depending on age and role being danced, (such as lipstick for the youngest dancers, and light general make up for older dancers). Make up is discouraged for class.
