GENERAL ATTIRE RULES

Pink Powder

Jeans/stiff pants should never be worn. They do not leave enough room for flexibility and mobility.

Pink Powder

Hair should be styled in a way that keeps it out of the face. This means a bun, ponytail, or braid(s).

Pink Powder

Dresses should also be avoided unless they are ballet dresses with bottoms built in. Tumbling and certain ballet moves become very difficult in this type of clothing.

Pink Powder

Distracting or loose jewelry should not be worn for safety reasons (i.e. necklaces, dangly earrings).

Pink Powder

Socks and tights are not acceptable footwear as it is much too slippery to dance in.

SHOES, SHOES, SHOES

We ask that dancers do not wear ballet shoes that have been purchased from Target or Meijer as these shoes are generally stiff and don't have a lot of give in the arch. The laces also tend to untie consistently.

 

We ask that everyone purchase the Capezio Hanami shoes as they do not have laces and fit well to the dancer's foot. If you do purchase shoes with laces, you must tie them then cut them as we will be unable to tie shoes for dancers this year! We also suggest dancers purchase tap shoes that buckle or velcro. Laces should be removed and replaced with tap ties (rubber band type material) to allow dancers to put shoes on by themselves if necessary!
