Notes

  • Ladies’ hair must be secured in a bun at ALL times.  If hair is short, a white headband will be necessary. No hair accessories (scrunchies, bun-covers, beads or bows) should be on or around your bun. Students should have extra hair pins, hair elastics, and hair gel/spray to secure their hair.
  • No jewelry allowed except stud earrings. Do not bring valuables with you. It is recommended to bring a lock for use in the locker room. Locks must be removed daily.  TWB@THEARC is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
  • Ladies in pointe shoes MUST have a needle, thread, scissors, water-proof tape, and band aids with them AT EVERY pointe class. ***Students must be able to put on their shoes within a 5 minute time frame.
  • Students must wear street-clothes/cover-ups AT ALL TIMES outside of the classrooms.
  • Please do not wear ballet shoes outside the building as they carry street dirt into the studio.

 

If a student forgets any uniform/mandatory items for class, the teacher may ask the student to sit and observe class that day. This is at the teacher’s discretion.
