BALLET KALAMAZOO UNIFORMS

We require every student in our Children's Ballet and the  Conservatory Ballet Program to secure the hair in a bun or a tied-down braid for all ballet classes, and all dangled jewelry must be removed. 

Dress Code: In classical ballet, dancers are asked to wear specific attire in a very uniform manner. The number one reason for this is to prevent distraction in the classroom. The teacher and dancers are able to work clearly on the technical artistry that ballet demands instead of getting lost in what’s fashionable.

 

The second reason for a dress code is discipline. When a student prepares physically for something (like ballet class) they focus, they take it seriously, and they gain pride in themselves. Instead of the room being chaotic or loud a calm and peaceful atmosphere can be created. This mental preparation sets our youth up for physical success in and outside of class. Furthermore, when the time comes to take the stage we can be full of patterns, designs, and colors to only enhance our dancers’  technique and celebrate their many achievements. 

Parents- We depend on you to help continue the expectations of the studio. There will be plenty of guidance on our end with instruction in the classroom, but wearing the correct attire is the dancer's and parent’s responsibility. 

We encourage our dancers to wear tights and shoes that match their skin.  We value individual beauty and nurture a connection to the mind, body, and soul.  By elongating our lines, we push beyond ourselves, break traditions and go confidently toward our dreams.
