WHAT TO WEAR TO DANCE CLASS

With lots of styles to choose from, we wanted to put a handy guide together to help you know what to wear for each class.

Reminder that ALL shoes need to be purchased through us. Ballet slippers are fine to get on your own for DISCOVER DANCE/PRESCHOOL/RISING STARS/TINY TOTS/TINY TWOS only.

CONTEMPORARY

BALLET/POINTE

Clothing: Anything which is fairly tight fitting so your posture can be checked. Helpful if you can see your ankles so can check foot positioning. Good quality yoga clothing works well for ballet as the fabric is breathable. For more advanced levels, a unitard or all-in-one with a leotard and tights can best show off your technique.

 

Shoes: Soft ballet shoes for all levels of ballet classes

Pointe shoes for pointe classes and ensure to get these fitted professionally (can book an appointment in most specialist dance shops).

Clothes: Loose-fitting clothes and leggings are great. Anything you can move freely in. Layers are always good to keep your body warm.

 

Shoes: Bare feet.

Clothes: Leotard, unitard, leggings, shorts, crop tops, fitted tops.

Shoes: Sneakers purchased through us.
