The dress code is an important tool for the correct development of technique and assists in preventing injuries. When the teacher can view the dancer’s body clearly, they are able to make subtle adjustments that may eliminate future problems. Students should refer to the specifics of the dress code in the Uniform Requirements.
Professional Stage Makeup is an essential part of performing. The purpose of stage makeup is to add color to the skin and to exaggerate the features, making them clearly visible to the audience.
All students will be required to supply their own make-up for performances. Students must wear foundation, eyeliner, eye shadow, blush, and lipstick.
Students in Grade 5 or above will be assessed for their readiness for pointe shoes. A student must be conscientious, serious, and physically strong before actually going on the toes or damage can be done to the body.
