 STEP BY STEP SCHOOL OF DANCE – DRESS CODE 2015/2016 

Female students:   Hair must be secured neatly off the face, in a bun, for all classes with the exception for Musical Theatre and Hip Hop where the hair can be tied back neatly away from the face.  A proper bun (secured with elastic, bobby pins and a hair net) is required for all students with medium to long hair.  Short hair is to be secured away from the face with a circular comb, and/or elastic.  Hair that is worn down inhibits the dancer’s ability to perform the required work done in class.  Sweatshirts, t-shirts and shorts and pants are not permitted.  Any dancer who does not follow the dress code will not be allowed to participate in their class.

Ballet & Jazz Shoe Fittings: It is very important that students are fitted correctly for their dance shoes.  Shoes are to fit snug to the child’s foot, no more than 1/8 inch room at the toe, or none at all (is better). The shoe is a good fit if it does not gap around opening and the toes are laying flat in the shoe.  You should not be able to pinch any material at the top or sides of the shoe.  Ballet slippers and Jazz shoes are made of soft leather and will stretch. DO NOT buy ballet slippers or jazz shoes with room to grow.  A shoe that is too big will not give your child proper support and will create blisters.  Please do not wear shoes or secure the elastic to the shoes until after your first class.  Your child’s teacher will be checking students’ shoes for proper fit, in their first class. 

Tap Shoe Fittings: It is very important that students are fitted correctly for their tap shoes.  To ensure a proper fit shoe, it should not gap around the opening, and the toes are laying flat in the shoe. No more than a thumb’s width room at the toe: less is better. You should not be able to pinch any material at the top or sides of the shoe.  The child’s heel should not lift when they walk.  A shoe that is too big will not give your child proper support and will create blisters.  You must have rubber attached to the soles of the tap shoes. Please ensure this is done before your first class. The shoe repair at 250 Greenbank Road will put the required rubber on (approx. $15) and attach the taps for you (approx. $12).  Please have your teacher check the fit of the tap shoes before your child’s first class, so the taps and rubber can be attached ready for the first lesson.
