For the safety and comfort of our students, proper dance attire and hair styles are required for every class. No jewelery may be worn in children’s classes. Please, leave the jewelry at home or hold it for your child so that it is not lost, damaged, or stolen. No jeans or “jeggings” may be worn to dance classes. Warm-ups and ballet skirts are allowed at the discretion of the instructor, but must be removed by the time dancers are warm (usually by ronde de jambe’s at the ballet barre or 20 minutes into class).
Please, talk to us if you are unable to locate the proper dance attire for your class. We do have some on hand. For purchasing attire, we highly recommend Lines Vermont in Williston, which is a local dance wear boutique owned and run by a dancer; and, the service is excellent.
Also, http://www.discountdance.com/ has a great selection of dance wear as well as a list of Ballet Wolcott’s required attire, use discount code: TP67616.
