Class Attire

Proper dance attire is an important part of dance class. It allows teachers to correct body alignment and technique and also gives the dancer a sense of professionalism. T-shirts, baggy shorts and sweats are not acceptable for class attire, but should be worn to and from the studio as cover-ups. Any dancers not properly dressed for class may be asked to sit out and observe. All dance clothing and shoes should be labeled with your dancer’s name to ensure its safe return if lost.

Tiny Toes, Kinder-Combo Classes
Any color leotard, with tights or socks. Skirts optional. All dancers must have pink leather ballet shoes and Kinder Combo will also need tap shoes. Hair pulled up off of neck and face.

Xpressions ballet students are required to wear a standard colored leotard corresponding to their class level.  Ballet 2 – Lavender, Ballet 3 – Light Blue, Ballet 4 – Royal blue, Ballet 5 – Navy Blue, Ballet 6 – Burgundy and Ballet 7 – Black (style of dancer’s choice). Class leotards for Ballet 2 through Ballet 6 are fitted and purchased at the studio.  Class leotards should not be purchased until your dancer has been leveled into the proper class.  If the dancer’s leotard from last season still fits, it can be worn this fall, but all dancers must be in the new leotards following the Christmas break.  Pink tights and pink leather ballet shoes are required and both are available at the studio.  Cover ups such as leg warmers and ballet sweaters may be worn for beginning warm-ups. No skirts or shorts.  Hair is to be pulled up in a tight, proper bun and worn with a hairnet.
