Uniform

Dance schools all around the world wear a dance uniform, to help students and teachers alike make the most out of class.   Hair should be in a ballet bun for ballet or tied back neatly for class.  

For your first class, don’t worry if you don’t have the uniform yet, just wear something comfortable to move in, and bare feet.

Where to Buy Dance Uniform

Please note that due to the huge range of sizes and seasonal nature of dancewear, suppliers usually size and order your leotards and shoes for you rather than carrying stock.  When planning to buy new dancewear please allow time for the ordering process.
