Ballet Attire
Additional Information:

    *HAIR: Creative Movement and Pre-ballet students may wear their hair in a traditional ballet bun or in a neat high ponytail with any bangs clipped off the face. Dancers Level A-1 and up must wear their hair in a classical ballet bun.

    If you need bun making lessons just ask, we are happy to help. A proper bun secured tightly to the head is important especially when turning in class. Hair that is falling out is disruptive to the learning process and is also a safety hazard as pins fall to the floor.

    *NO DANGLING EARRINGS. This is a safety requirement. No rings, bracelets, or necklaces. Please leave your jewelry at home.

Leotards and dance attire are available through Saratoga Dance Etc, 53 Church Street in Saratoga (584-8690).
