These dress guidelines help ensure safety, help us better evaluate your child’s performance, and help eliminate competition to see who can have the newest fashion or fancier product. Also, wearing the proper clothing encourages respect for this time-honored art form.

dress code infoAll female ballet students must have the dress or leotard and skirt assigned to their ballet class level in the exact brand, style, and color specified. The Sock Basket carries the school’s ballet uniforms as well as proper tights, shoes, etc. Please be sure of your child’s class placement before purchasing dance wear. To help with hygiene and laundry if may be wise to have more than one leotard. Additional leotards may be identical or the same manufacturer and color but a different style. Replacement tights will be available for purchase at the studio if tights are too small, tattered, worn, dirty, or lost.

Do not wear street shoes on studio floors, or ballet shoes outside of the studio. All female students must wear a bra under all leotards where appropriate. Camisole leotards with flimsy straps or leotards that are too small, either of which require constant pulling up or pulling down are not appropriate for class. Leotards should have modestly high necklines in the front, and backs that cover bra straps.

Hair – Hair must be securely pinned up in a bun. No loose braids, pony tails, etc. are permitted. Bangs should be secured back if hanging in eyes, and hair pinned up off the back of the neck.

Tights and Leotards – Pink tights with feet and pink ballet slippers (and pink pointe shoes if necessary) are required. Tights should be “ballet” or “theatrical” pink and not the shimmery kind. Any solid-color, tight fitting leotard: no stripes, polka dots, or other patterns; no puffed or ruffled shoulders, bloused sleeves, pleats, ruffles, attached skirts, high-cut leg lines, or aerobic or swim wear; a minimum number of seams and straps. Underwear should not be worn under tights and leotard.

Prohibited Items – Students may not wear any other type of pants, shirts, sweat clothes, leg warmers, or other extraneous or concealing garments during ballet classes. For safety, no jewelry is allowed except stud earrings. No food, drink, or chewing gum in the studios, only closed water containers.

Ballet & Pointe Shoes – Elastics (on all ballet and pointe shoes) and ribbons (pointe shoes only) must be properly sewn. Please allow us to inspect the fit of ballet and pointe shoes before they are sewn or worn. It often takes several tries and several trips to the store before a well-fitted pair is agreed upon. Properly fitted pointe shoes are a must for the safety of your child’s feet. Please do not buy “Russian Pointe” pointe shoes, “Bloch Elastosplit” ballet slippers (or equivalent), SoDanca or Wearmoi brands.

Advanced Ballet – Any items worn over tights and leotards are at the discretion of the instructor and must be solid-colored and tight fitting.Gentlemen – Please consult the director.

Adult Ballet – Tights, leotard, ballet slippers. Many adults wear shirts, sweaters, skirts, sweatpants, etc. on top. Solid colors preferred. Hair up where it won’t bother you. Please inquire if you have any questions.

Modern Dance – Other color tights permitted.
