Dress Code & Uniforms

DRESS CODE

A Dancer’s attire and grooming greatly determines the attitude and focus of a student toward her/his class work, therefore we require that a certain standard of appropriate neatness be observed at all times.

Cover Ups

Students should have their class wear covered while travelling to and from class. Jamie’s Academy of Dance hoodies are recommended and available for purchase at the studio. Track pants should also be worn and we have a selection of sizes also available.

Underwear

Both tights and leotards have cotton lined panels that act as underwear. Briefs/undies should not be worn and getting you pre-schooler use to this from the very beginning is highly recommended however they will be accepted in pre-school classes only.

Jewellery

Stud or small earrings are the only type of jewellery permitted in dance classes. Watches, necklaces, large rings and bracelets are potentially hazardous and should not be worn.

Shoes

Do not wear dance shoes outside. Oil and dirt is hazardous when tracked into the studio and are damaging to the shoes. Please write names inside all dance shoes. Be sure the shoes fit properly. They should be snug – not fitted with ample room for growth. Toe nails should be cut short and straight to avoid soreness.

Ballet shoes should have the drawstring pulled taunt around the foot, then tie and tuck into the shoe. No bows or long drawstrings. If sewing on elastic please see your teacher for advice on how to sew these on properly.

We have a selection of second hand shoes, please speak to a teacher if you would like to sell or have a look through these items.
