FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What should my child wear to class?
A: It is important to dress in appropriate clothes for dance to allow for mobility, to limit distractions and to help your child really feel like a dancer!
Your youngest dancer, age 2, should wear comfortable clothes; stretchy or loose fitting pants, and a comfortable t-shirt, and bare feet. If you wish to dress them in more traditional dance wear, please refer below.
Boys, ages 3-6 years old—black leggings and white t-shirt with black leather ballet slippers
Girls, ages 3-6 years old—any color leotard, tutu or wrap skirt optional, full footed or footless pink tights with pink leather ballet slippers. Slippers without a drawstring are strongly recommended. Find them here "Love Ballet" slippers by Capezio.
Dancers in Primary Ballet I/II, ages 5-6 years old, should have their hair pulled back in a ponytail or bun during class, if hair length permits. Shorter hair should be kept out of the face with a headband or clips.
Satin children’s bedroom slippers, jeans, other bulky clothing and costume jewelry should not be worn to class.
Q: Where can I purchase my child’s dance wear?
A: Stores such as WalMart and Target have a sweet selection of leotards and tights. Discount Dance Supply (https://www.discountdance.com) has a beautiful variety of leotards, tutus, sweaters and leather ballet slippers for both boys and girls.
