Proper dress is crucial in ballet class. Wearing the proper attire allows students to focus and for teachers to give corrections. If a student is not wearing appropriate clothing, the teacher may not be able to see the student, which can cause the student to develop bad habits that can lead to injury. It is also important for all students to be in similar attire so that the teacher can quickly and easily identify problems in alignment or technique.
Pre-Ballet students should wear a pink leotard with pink tight and pink slippers. Hair should be secured in a bun or otherwise pulled away from the face if too short for a bun.
Ballet and Pointe
In ballet classes all students must wear a plain black tank or camisole leotard, with Capezio #9 or #9C tights, and Sansha soft shoes. Hair should be secured in a bun, hair too short to put in a bun should be secured away from the face. Pointe shoes should be pink with ribbons and elastic sewn on. The brand and model of the shoe is the student's choice but must be approved by the director before they are sewn.
Adults do not need to wear a leotard and tights, but should wear clothes that allow for freedom of movement. Clothes should be tight enough that the teacher can see body alignment. Soft ballet shoes are required. Hair should be secured in a bun or away from the face if too short for a bun.
