A neat and tidy appearance sets an attitude of attentiveness and respect for students, teachers and the art of dance. Teachers must be able to see the dancer’s body outline clearly in order to make proper corrections on posture, alignment, etc. Hair must be properly secured and tied up off of the face and neck for all styles of dance. Jewelry must not be loose or dangling. Gum chewing is not allowed due to danger of choking and appearance. No loose fitting pants, blue jeans or t-shirts. No costumes are allowed in class unless a dress up day is announced by the individual teacher.
Part of ballet training is simple discipline, teaching children that details matter and respect is important. That includes having your hair up in a bun for ballet class, following dress code and arriving on time with what you need for class. Take this seriously -- it's one of the beautiful things that sets our art apart from other activities.
