Leotard models and colors as follows:

Kinder through Level II, black short sleeved, scoop-neck leotard, not shiny; also not shiny pink tights and ballet shoes, black buckle or velcro tap shoes. Level III Bloch tank top leotard model BCL5465 princess style or BCL5405 plain front in Lavender; Level IV Mirella 207L with matching burgundy 12 inch skirt; Level V Mirella 207L with matching black 12 inch skirt. Levels III through V are required to wear pink tights, 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 or leggings 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.  No hair in the face is allowed even if in a barrette or braid.

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.
