Dress Code

For Childrens Program and Pre-Professional Progam

Dress code is an essential component of ballet’s two-hundred year old discipline. In addition to teaching preparedness, the ballet uniform keeps the classroom focused and improves the instructor’s ability to assess and correct placement, thereby helping your child dance safely. ALL students are required to adhere to the dress code for their level. Students not in dress code will be asked to sit and watch class.

All dance attire and footwear must be of right size and kept in good repair.  Dancewear and footwear that fit improperly can distract the student from fully participating in class.

Please put your child’s name in all dance wear and footwear. Bayou City Ballet School and its staff are not responsible for belongings left in studios, dressing area, restrooms or any common spaces.
