Level III Bloch tank top leotard model BCL5465 princess style or BCL5405 plain front in Lavender; Level IV Capezio Princes Camisole Style CC100 in Burgundy with matching Capezio CC130 skirt or Mirella 207L with matching burgundy 12 inch skirt; Level V Capezio Princes Camisole Style CC100 in Black with matching Capezio CC130 skirt or Mirella 207L with matching black 12 inch skirt; and Level VI (Pre-Professional) Capezio Princes Camisole Style in Dusty Pink with matching Capezio CC130 skirt. Levels III through VI are required to wear pink ballet shoes, preferably split-soled and leather; and pink pointe shoes.

We prefer tan tie-up jazz shoes with flesh colored (tan) tights for jazz. Any colored leotard may be worn for jazz – but students must wear a leotard. Jazz shorts may be worn over leotard, but no sweats or baggy pants. If a student is going into jazz class immediately following ballet class, ballet class attire may be worn in the jazz class with the proper jazz shoe. Modern class requires a black leotard and black footless tights. No shoes are required for modern, but toe undies may be worn.

All female students are required to wear their hair in a bun. If hair is too short for a bun, it must be pulled back away from the face in a ponytail or with a headband. Bangs are not allowed and must be secured back away from the face using bobby pins or hair gel.

Ballet boys are required to wear white crew neck tee shirts, black shorts, or tights with a dance belt, with white ballet shoes and white crew socks.

Black buckle or Velcro tap shoes must be worn for tap class.

***Dancewear may be purchased from the studio (Revolution brand only) or any dancewear store of your choice. We do not sell pointe shoes.
