BALLET UNIFORM NOTES

Ballet students taking three or more classes

For students taking three plus ballet classes a week, a second body suit will be needed.  Students may wear a leotard color of their choice.  This may be the students own color choice. It may be tank or spaghetti strap but please keep it a simple design, plain straps only. The teachers will advise when they can wear the 2nd leotard.

Grade One upwards ballet girls

Consider your leotard like a bathing suit.  You do not need to wear anything but your tights underneath.  Please make sure bra straps are hidden.  Bras are meant to be under garments.  Please make sure bodysuits are fitted snuggly to avoid shoulder straps slipping during class.  Motionwear leotards are very stretchy and have comfortable straps.

Character skirts

Character skirts will be fitted in class in September.   The studio rents character skirts for a one time fee of $20 – as the students grows we will exchange their skirt for the next size.   Please note the character skirts are specific to our studio.  Please do not buy elsewhere.  The character skirts remain at the studio.
