The Ballet Academy

Come and be inspired by the joy of dance

General Information

Students must have their hair tied back at all times. This is due to safety reasons, with the movements exercised by the students, hair can flick into their eyes. Please no jewellery. This includes, watches, bracelets, rings and necklaces. Earrings are fine as long as they cannot either fling off or get caught (ie:no dangly earrings). This again for safety reasons. For the first four weeks, students are most welcome to wear bike shorts, t-shirt and bare feet. Please name all parts of your uniform, especially both dance shoes. Any named clothing will be returned to the owner; unnamed clothing will be donated to charity.

Please no fairy dresses or Ballet outfits from Farmers, The Warehouse etc.

The Ballet Academy is not responsible for any lost property including Ballet Shoes.
