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.
