Dance Etiquette and Requirements for Class

There are many reasons why having a uniform is ideal for children’s dance classes; from ensuring they are able to dance comfortably with no restrictions or risks, to having a sense of belonging as part of a group.

We are flexible when you start implementing the uniform, particularly for our younger dancers. We do encourage you to make children aware that they still need to dress appropriately for class and most children love wearing their special dance clothes; which was one of the main reasons we put together a uniform and it was suggested by parents themselves. 

Each class has their own uniform and they have been chosen to ensure children are wearing age appropriate clothing. As they progress through classes the uniform changes slightly and to make life easier the same leotard is used for Prep and Primary Ballet, with just a change of skirt. We work with local dance suppliers to ensure we can get you affordable, quality dance wear and we also stock some items at class.

One requirement for ALL children is to have properly fitting dance shoes. We recommend full sole leather shoes as a preference and split soles for our older dancers. No socks are permitted in classes due to slipping, bare feet are fine until shoes are purchased.

Orders can be made at any time through our website dance shop
