Hair

Ballet Hair

Hair must be in a classical bun for all ballet classes Primary and and upwards.

Older students are encouraged to learn how to do their hair themselves as this plays a part in learning the discipline of preparing for ballet and taking responsibility for presentation.

This is something that dancers learn to feel proud of because it plays such an enormous part in understanding ballet discipline. Hair tied in a classical bun allows a dancer to feel the length properly in the back of the neck, spot properly when turning and allows the teacher to see the lines the dancer is creating and correct appropriately.

Modern Theatre, Tap & Jazz

Must be tied back neatly for these classes too. A ponytail with fringes and wisps off of the face. If your child has long hair, a ponytail is not sufficient as this flicks into the face when turning. A bun in this instance is recommended.
