Uniform & Dancewear
We do require all our pupils to wear a uniform for all classes. Grooming and presentation is an essential part of the Performing Arts and wearing a uniform helps to give a sense of belonging.
All professional dance schools will insist on uniform as an essential part of Health and Safety and it allows us to see correct posture and alignment of the dancers bodies - an important thing in the training of a dancer. When dancers wear the correct uniform and are well groomed it shows respect to the teachers and also to themselves.
We are proud of our uniform and encourage all new starters to purchase the items as soon as is possible however we would suggest that you wait until after the 3 week trial period is completed. Although we are very much aware that children will put pressure on to buy everything they need on week one we would urge you to make sure the school is right for their needs before paying out for uniform!
