Dress code

Youth Programme:

Upon registration, students will receive one bodysuit and one pair of tights (colour according to dress code below). Students must be in their dance uniform in order to participate in class. We have a dress code for our kids’ classes for several reasons: it allows teachers to see the dancer’s body (it’s hard to tell if a dancer is going to hurt their knees if we can’t see their legs!), it’s required for dance exams, and it gives the dancers a sense of professionalism and team spirit. Please keep your dancer’s hair out of their face! Hair doesn’t have to be in a bun, but it should be pulled back – it’s far more comfortable, and a lot easier to dance in.
