Hair, Jewelry, & Warm-ups

Hair should be neatly pulled back and secured with no loose strands. Use plenty of hairpins to hold the hair so it doesn't come down during class. A hairnet and hairspray or gel help to prevent flyaways. Snoods and butterfly clips should not be used. Acceptable variations of a classic bun include a French twist, crown braid, two side buns, and braided buns, as long as the hair is tight and secure.
 

Jewelry is not to be worn in class. Stud earrings are acceptable. Instructors reserve the right to ask students to remove articles of jewelry if they are distracting or unsafe for the dancer to wear in class.

‚Äč

In the winter months, dancers should bring a fitted ballet sweater (pink or black) with them to class. Also, fitted solid pink leg warmers or a fitted solid pink or black full body warmer may be worn during cold weather periods. Baggy cover-ups will not be allowed in class.
