Dress Code 2016/7

NOTE FOR ALL STUDENTS:

Students may wear their old bodysuit, skirt or shoes until outgrown, regardless of colour or style. When purchasing items, please follow uniform guidelines.

BALLET – R.A.D. syllabus

FIT OF BALLET SLIPPERS:

The studio director prefers that all ballet slippers fit well, to provide proper support and so that use of the foot can be clearly seen. A new pair would need to be purchased during the year if your child’s feet grow more than half a size. Only children younger than 6 years old may have more growing room, per Lorraine Blake.
