It is important that students are in proper dress code for class. Please take time to read the requirements and let us know if you need help finding any of the required dress code. FSPA sells the required leotards and tights. We are also able to order other items at a low cost to you. Ask How!
For all classes:
Hair completely off face and secured up off neck. Neat buns for all ballet students.
No underwear worn under the tights. The tights are meant to take their place.
Please wear a cover up over leotards when coming and going to and from the dance studio.
Do not wear dance shoes outside. Street shoes are not permitted in the studios.
Keep dance shoes in a small bag that you will bring into class with you. Please bring all belongings into the classroom with you. We are not responsible for your belongings when you are in class.

*Pink footed ballet tights, split sole ballet shoes, hair in classic bun, no shorts. Skirts may be worn only if they are solid and match the leotard color.
** In keeping with traditional Ballet dress code no undergarments should be worn under leotards. This includes both underwear and sports bras. Leotards should fit like a bathing suit and traditionally all leotards have a lining in them so a sports bra should not be necessary. Obviously some girls are a little more developed than others and if your daughter is uncomfortable without the extra support please reach out to Miss Jackie about options for your daughter. As always, we want everyone to feel comfortable in class!
