School of Ballet Attire

 Attire for Ballet Class

A very important part of a dancer's training is his or her appearance. Beautiful dancing and careful preparation of a role can be spoiled by careless or sloppy appearance. The "look" of a ballerina begins in the classroom. The male dancer must dress the part of the masculine danseur.

Each dancer must be dressed appropriately for each class. This includes a tidy appearance in both hair and dress. Hair must be secured back from the face and neck in a bun or French braid and secured with a strong clasp if the hair is short. Please no headbands!

Girl Attire: Pink ballet shoes, ballet pink footed tights, and a solid colored leotard are required for each class. Please do not wear tan colored tights or tights that have the feet cut out of them. Skirts are not allowed in class – leotards with skirts attached are not allowed in class —they are a distraction to the young dancers, and hinder the teacher's observation of proper hip/body alignment. However! Read the next paragraph!

TUTU/SKIRT DAY: Beginning in the month of September, the first class of each month there will be a "Tutu/skirt Day". This will give the students an opportunity to wear their recital tutu, skirt or skirted leotard to class. TUTUS MAY BE BORROWED FROM THE SCHOOL IF THE DANCER HAS FORGOTTEN TO BRING HER OWN TUTU OR SKIRT.

Boy Attire: White (or black) shoes and white socks, black tights, or bike shorts and a white T-shirt are the standard dress code.

For All dancers: No baggy sweatshirts, shorts or plastic pants are allowed during class and leg warmers may be worn only with the teacher's permission. Dancers are not allowed to wear jewelry or watches in class. Leave the diamonds at home!

Shoes: Ballet shoes must fit the foot snugly for proper support. Do not buy the shoes to grow into. Ballet shoes must fit the foot like a glove. The child's name should be written inside each ballet shoe with permanent marker. Please consult Ms. Kovich concerning jazz and character shoes for those classes. Ballet and pointe shoes must have elastic and/or ribbons sewn onto shoes. The strings must be tied in a double knot and trimmed off. No safety pins securing shoes are allowed- it is unsafe. If shoes are forgotten or secured with pins, the student will be asked to sit and observe class. This is not a punishment, but rather, a safety precaution!

Lost & Found Basket: There is a basket in the waiting area that contains ballet shoes that may be "borrowed" in the event of forgotten shoes – and if your child has outgrown her shoes, you are encouraged to donate used shoes to the basket. Return the shoes to the basket after class if you have borrowed them!
