For class please do not come in street clothes (except for hip-hop).

Leotards, unitards, and leggings are all acceptable. No baggy tops or shorts, please.


Before exams please make sure that your ballet shoes are clean and that all elastics and ribbons are securely sewn on.

Character skirts need to have hooks and eyes and not just velcro as sometimes the velcro doesn’t hold.

Always keep a spare pair of tights, as there is always the possibility of a ladder.

Character skirts are to have rows of ribbon at the bottom to complement the colour of the leotard worn. We normally go for a minimum of three rows of blue ribbon in different shades with the darkest one at the bottom.
