If hair is long, it should be pulled back in a ponytail or bun. If hair short it needs to be pinned away from the face as well. No jewelry except for small stud earrings.


Shoes will need elastic straps sewn across insteps. Ballets slippers should fit like gloves, snug but in no way cramping toes or restricting movement. Be sure they are wide enough. After your child’s teacher checks them for fit, sew in elastics and put your child’s name in both shoes. Please cut the ballet strings no longer than 2 inches and tie them and/or tuck them in the shoes.
