Elegantly ready to dance
 
 Centuries ago the traditions for ballet students included specific clothing, worn only for ballet class.  Today that tradition continues with dress codes and expected behaviors.  Students show respect by dressing correctly, in their assigned class leotard and hair neatly pulled back in the traditional bun, dressed for dance.
 
,This simple task of putting hair into a beautifully done ballet bun, pulling on tights and leotard leading the way to so many important achievements to come.  We build responsible habits day by day, lesson by lesson.
 

The uniformity of a single color builds inclusiveness and unity among the students. No one student is set aside as different. Levels are defined by leotard style and color, allowing students to look forward to their new level and color.
