Uniforms for class

The Dance school has a ‘uniform’ or dance costume for all classes.  A dancer's body is their 'tool of trade' to be trained correctly to move to the very best of their ability.  Dance requires the correct dress or costume in order to perform the dance movements and to allow the teacher to train the movements without having to deal with incorrect attire.  Part of the etiquette for Classical ballet class is to take a pride in being perfectly groomed.

ALL STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO COMPLY WITH THE CORRECT UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS
