Students should come to class on time and ready to dance:

  2. Appropriate dance clothing and dance shoes are required.
  3. All hair must be up – buns are required for all ballet classes. Ponytails (or hair cut above the ears) are required for all other classes. Learn how to make a ballet bun here.
