The Academy has a lovely set uniform for classes. The uniform is an important part of dance discipline and allows the teacher to properly see and correct the students body alignment. A uniform sheet with full details is provided upon enrollment and enrollment enquiries. The uniform sheet can also be viewed as a download on our ’Information’ page
We are fortunate to have our very own dance store located within our studio. The uniform and required dance shoes can be purchased from our studio store located Academy of Dance Victoria at the Lexton Road Studio Location or
from M&M Dance Supplies in Tempelstowe at 31A Macedon Rd Templestowe
We recommend that shoes are purchased at our studio or in store so they can be properly fitted. Leotards, skirts and other clothing items can be purchased easily online as well as in store. Samples of the leotards and ballet skirts are available to view at the studio.
HAIR FOR CLASS
It is important that students have their hair in a very neat ballet bun for all ballet classes at the Academy of Dance Victoria. Below is a youtube link with a demonstration of one easy way to do a neat ballet bun. Students in Pre-School Dance and Jazz classes need to have their hair tied up neatly and out of their face.
The items that you will need are all available from the local supermarket, priceline, pharmacy, Hair House Warehouse and most standard hair supply shops:
Bobby pins or french pins
Strong Hair Elastic
Hair spray &/or water spray bottle
Hairbrush or comb
