CLASS ATTIRE
  • Mommy and Me & Fairy Tale Ballet:  We do not have a dress code for the little ones; however many arrive in fun tutus, leotards and ballet slippers.  We just ask that they wear something they're comfortable in.  If they're wearing skirts they should wear shorts underneath. If a student does not have ballet slippers, we do ask that they go barefoot. We suggest coming to class dressed and ready.

  • Attire for Little Prima Ballerina, Ballet 1-4: We prefer our level 1 and up students wear proper ballet attire, including a leotard (see suggested-but not required-colors below), tights (not required until Ballet 3), and ballet slippers. We suggest coming to class dressed and ready.
        Suggested level colors:
                   - Little Prima Ballerina suggested color: light pink
                    - Ballet 1 suggested color: white
                    - Ballet 2 suggested color: turquoise

                    - Ballet 4 suggested color: hot pink
