A uniform for ballet is not just about looking smart. Ballet is a discipline and we firmly believe that a school uniform helps to create a culture for effective learning and brings a sense of belonging, pride and unity.  We don’t want our students to be distracted by frills or flounces, wings or leg warmers, or by who has the latest, best leotard!  But most importantly, our teachers must be able to see the child’s alignment and positioning from head to toe in order to make proper corrections when needed.

  • Uniform for children in the pre-school classes is encouraged but optional.
  • From Primary upwards class uniform is a requirement once your child has settled into their class.
  • Adults and non syllabus students may wear any comfortable close fitting exercise/yoga style clothing.
  • In order that the student may move freely, and for the teacher to observe accurately, all clothing (including shoes) should fit snugly. Please don’t purchase items with room for growth – all dance clothing and leather shoes will stretch to fit. Split-soled ballet shoes are not permitted.

Please note that we try hard to keep costs as low as possible and second-hand items are usually available from us.
