Uniform & Etiquette
With the right uniform, you are ready to perform
Dance, the Uniform and dress code
It is important to dress neat and tidy
Shoes are very important. Low heel canvas for G1 and G2, Cuban heel from G3. It is a different style of dance so ballet shoes should not be worn. The skirts are expensive but must be worn for exams and class so please do check the swap shop to see if you can buy a second hand one.
Please check that your children have hair kits in their ballet bags and encourage them to help each other with buns before class. Ideally in a bun from Grade 1.
Baby Ballet to Primary – A neat ponytail, if you can do a bun you get extra brownie points!
G3 and above – a BUN is a must!! Girls are more than able enough to do their own hair before class.
Wearing hair down and / or moving around obstructs the line of the head and neck and can be off putting when turning or moving quickly! It is safer that it is out of the way. From G3 and above students will be given two warnings about their hair and asked to come the following week with correct hair. A student may be asked to watch their class if they are not dressed correctly.
Cotton lycra cross–over cardigans in the same colour as your leotard can be worn for class. This is the only layer that will be allowed. Baggy jumpers and fashion tops are a no no!
