Ballet and Pointe
Ballet is the "backbone" of all forms of dance. A must for a serious dance student and for those who strictly love the art form.
When a student reaches the required age and ability level if they are strong enough they will also be able to add a pointe class. Usually the teacher asks that students take at least two other regular ballet classes per week in order to do pointework.
Ballet - Leotard color as per specific class. Pink tights, pink ballet shoes (leather or canvas for class). Most likely younger classes will use leather for recital and older classes will use canvas. Please purchase through DPU as they will need to match for recital. ALL of Mr. Kam's classes need black leotard and pink tights. For Ms. Meredith's ballet l, ll, lll, and lV classes students may wear solid black, turquoise, or cerise ( hot pink), leotards with ballet pink tights. If you are in Ballet IV and have burgundy or navy from last year that is fine also. Ms. Meredith's intermediate and advanced may wear black or the navy or burgundy solid color leotards from last season with ballet pink tights. Hair must be in a bun for ALL ballet classes. Failure to abide by dress code after first warning in upper level classes will result in student being provided and charged with necessary attire or asked to sit out of class.
