UNIFORM & HAIR
There is a very strict uniform and hair policy. All correct uniform must be worn at all times.
Pre-Primary Ballet - Grade 2 Ballet:
Centre parting, 2 classical twists and bun. This is then to be worn for Modern and Tap classes.
Grade 3 Ballet upwards:
Left side parting, 2 classical twists and bun. This is then worn for Modern, Jazz, Contemporary and Tap classes.
If hair is too short for a bun, please ensure it is neatly tied back or worn with a head band.
Hair for Musical Theatre classes does not have to be in a bun, but should still be neatly off the face and tied back when appropriate.
We would like to maintain a very professional and disciplined look to the school at all times. More information will be on the website soon, including a short video on how to create these styles.
From September 2015 we will be introducing a new Ballet uniform:
Dainty Dancers - Grade 1 - ISTD Ballet Leotard in Aqua with Attached Skirt.
Grade 2- Grade 4 - ISTD Ballet Leotard In Aqua.
When your Child is due a new uniform could you please purchase the above leotard. These are Available from IDS and Lets Dance in Welwyn.
Ballet, Tap and Modern Examinations are held twice a year, usually at Christmas and Easter. The teachers monitor students' progress throughout each term and those who have reached the necessary standard, will be entered for the exam. The School has 100% pass rate for all graded exams in ballet, modern and tap, with a high percentage gaining Distinction.
