2017-18 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 leotard mandated for their level. All levels require pink tights and pink ballet slippers for girls. Students who pass the school’s pointe exam may be fitted for pointe shoes. Please mark the inside labels of attire with your child’s name to avoid loss.

Boy’s Attire

Boys should wear black tights or leggings, a dance belt, a white, close-fitting T-shirt or leotard, white socks and black ballet shoes.

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.

Level 6 Students

Girl’s Ballet Slippers

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: we prefer either Bloch 205 or the Theatrical 238. Capezio 205 or 200 are acceptable as well as other brands providing the slipper is full-soled leather.

Levels 5 & up: Students may wear full- or split-sole slippers. We prefer the Bloch #203 or #258 leather split-sole. Bloch #261, #277, or ProElastic SO621L split-sole in canvas are also available for those who prefer a canvas shoe. Other brands are acceptable as long as the fit is correct.

We prefer two brands: Eurotard “Euroskins” in theatrical pink, micro fiber tights with back seams. Child’s footed: Style #215C, Child’s convertible: Style #218C. Adult convertible: Style #218. Or Bloch Endura microfiber tights in pink. Child footed style #921G or Adult convertible style #TO936.
