At Bebe Ballet, we believe that wearing the studio uniform gives students a sense of belonging to our family as well as creating an identity for our studio in the greater community.
Wearing our uniform:
• Encourages discipline
• Helps students resist peer pressure to buy stylish clothes for class
• Helps identify non-students in the studio
• Diminishes economic and social barriers between students
• Increases a sense of belonging and school pride
• Improves attendance
Part of learning to dance is to present the proper appearance, this includes clothing that allows the teacher to see the proper positioning and placement of the body. A leotard (either by itself or with a skirt) is essential for girls in class. Children need to have a neat appearance at all times. Hair needs to be up and off the face. For the safety of your dancer and other students in the class, we do not allow children to wear jewellery or watches during class. Wings, wands, jiffies and tiaras are not to be worn. Baggy clothing and zips should also be avoided.
Whilst we would love our female students to have their hair in a ballet bun for class we realise that this is not always possible. Hair must be off the face for class. Hair must not be able to “whip” the child’s face whilst they are moving. Hair must be up in at least a ponytail for class if it is long enough. Please note that Students should wear a cover-up outside the studio. Bebe Ballet has a large range of dancewear, accessories, dress-ups and cover-ups available for purchase either through Classes or through our supplier Betty Ballerina. Betty Ballerina is located at 236a Grange Road, Flinders Park or you can purchase online.
