What to wear for Ballet
It is recommended that for Intermediate and Advanced classes, students wear leotard and tights or leggings, although most don’t. However, for beginners classes, leggings and a top which does not gape around the arms or neck is fine.
It is also recommended that hair is tied back with no hair falling over the eyes.
Split sole leather ballet shoes with crossed elastic straps are recommended.
Advanced dancers may do pointe work if they wish, but most choose not to.
What to wear for Tap
Any trousers, leggings, joggers, shorts are best for Tap classes. Skirts and dresses are not recommended as these can restrict movement. Also, long or flared trousers can also hinder movement, and can be damaged if they get caught on shoes. Any comfortable top is fine.
Black low heeled full lace up Oxford Tap shoes commended. Split soles are also fine, as long as the dancer has strong feet. Usually, those who buy cheap shoes change to the above for comfort and better sounds
Members of the Advanced Adult Ballet Class and all Tap Classes may have an opportunity to dance in the show if they wish to.
