Hair

In keeping with the traditions of classical ballet, girls must wear hair secured tightly in a bun on the back of the head for all classes. With the exception of the 3 and 4 year olds, this applies to all levels, all the time.


Shoes

Purchase full-soled pink leather ballet slippers from a dance specialty store. The shoes sold in discount stores or regular shoe stores often use inferior materials and are not suitable for ballet. We recommend Capezio or Bloch. You must take your child to the store to be fitted. Ballet slipper sizing is unique. Slippers should not be bought with room to grow. Elastics should be sewn on slippers and drawstrings should be knotted, tied in a bow, and tucked in.


Tights

Please check throughout the year for the need to purchase larger sizes as your child grows.


Sweaters

During cold weather, younger students may wear a tight fitting wrap style ballet sweater. Eurotard 72523C or Body Wrappers 3201 are good choices. For Storybook through Ballet IB, please wear pink. For Ballet IIA and up, please wear black.


Jewelry

Small earrings may be worn but no other jewelry is allowed.
