What to Wear to DanceAn important part of any dancers training is to encourage good grooming and presentation. Appropriate attire allows teachers to seebodyline and movement and be able to give necessary instruction to promote the students progress. Listed below are uniform re-quirements for classes offered at the school. While these items are not compulsory for class attendance - they are preferred and arerequired for students participating in dance assessments.Hair should be pulled back neatly into a bun or ponytail for all classes. In dance it is vital that students are focused on the class workand not be distracted by hair falling over the face. If students have short hair a headband to keep their hair from their face is advised.Buns should be worn for classical ballet. No jewelry except watches and medic alert bracelets are to be worn in class.
