2016-17 Class Attire

It is important for everyone in class to have a uniform appearance to encourage unity and discipline. Each syllabus level is designated by a particular color. Students are expected to wear the color and style of leotard mandated for their level.

Girl’s Hair: In all classes girls are expected to wear their hair up in a bun or other fashion that is neat and away from their face. In Level 3 and up, buns are required for long hair. Students MUST bring a bag containing a comb or brush, hair elastics, hair nets, and hair pins or bobby pins in their dance bags.

Male students wear black tights, a white, close-fitting T-shirt, white socks and black ballet shoes.

Attire may be purchased at Patterson’s in Burlington, Massachusetts or Dance This Way in West Concord. Both stock ASB attire and are knowledgeable about our syllabus. Other local that stores may have stock or be able to order our attire include Damien’s Dancewear in Chelmsford, and Dancer’s Boutique in Fitchburg, and Dancer’s Warehouse in Milford and Wellesley.

Fairy Tale Dance (3 year-olds), First Steps (4 year-olds), Pre-Ballet (kind & 1st grade), and Levels 1–4: All students wear pink, full-sole leather ballet slippers: either Bloch 205 or the Theatrical 238 is preferred. Capezio 205 or 200 are acceptable as well as other brands providing the slipper is full-soled leather.
