Uniform is an essential part of the discipline of all subjects and reflects the commitment from students to their studies. Moreover, uniform has practical implications for the performance of dance, hence the different styles of shoes and other apparel necessary for different subjects.
The ability of the teacher to see the silhouette of a dancer’s body helps in making the necessary corrections and adjustment to ensure safe and proper execution of all movements and steps. For this reason, close fitting clothing is essential. Likewise, safety must be taken into account when considering jewellery and other accessories. Loose jewellery, earrings and necklaces, belts, untied shoe laces or ribbons can all present hazards whilst dancing, especially in groups and/or with partners. For similar reasons long hair should be secured in a bun with fringes also pinned back off the face.
Uniform can be purchased and ordered through your branch secretary. Dance shoes and dancewear need to fit correctly to enable correct technique. Therefore, all items of uniform are held in stock in our sales department and will be fitted accordingly.
