Creative Ballet Program

Class Attire

Girls will need to wear a leotard of any color, pink or black tights, and pink ballet shoes, or bare feet (make sure tights are footless to reduce slipping). Boys will need to wear a white t-shirt or leotard, black tights or pants, white or black ballet shoes or bare feet (make sure tights are footless to reduce slipping).

Note To Parents

If necessary, canvas blinds will be hung on the windows to prevent your child getting disrupted. If you do go outside to try to sneak a peek, please be aware that the class can hear you. Please, no hitting or banging on the windows. Each session ends with a 'performance' in which parents, friends, and family are invited into the studio to watch class. This is a great time to break out the video cameras, invite grandparents, etc. and see what the class has been learning.

Please note: if your child is not restroom independent, please remain in the lobby during class or make sure that they can make it through class without using the restroom.
