Dance Attire for class:

Students wear a leotard and attached skirt or leotard and skirt in the same color, pink convertible or transitional tights (hole in the bottom of the foot) and pink ballet slippers the leather or canvas kind. Brands I recommend: Sansha split sole, and Dance Class by Trimfoot split sole.

Students wear the color based on age and move up to the next class and color.

2-3 year olds wear a light pink dance dress, 4-5 year olds wear a purple or white dance dress, 6-7 year olds wear a blue dance dress, 8-9 year olds wear a black dance dress, 10 years and up wear a black dance dress. On hot days students do not need to wear tights under the dance dress. Please write the student's name with a sharpie inside each ballet shoe.

$5.00 per show per ticket and we have 2 shows a year. This fee helps offset the theater prices and any dry cleaning that needs to be done for the Nutcracker tutus.
