Attire

Hair

B​allet, Lyrical​

Dancers may wear hair in a traditional ballet bun at the crown of the head with bangs away from the face. If a student has short hair, or is unable to wear a bun all hair including bangs must be away from the face. The goal is to have the hair off the neckline to allow correct ballet lines, secured in a style that cannot move around or obstruct the dancer's vision. No headbands.

All Other Classes

Dancers may wear hair in a traditional ballet bun or in a neat high ponytail with bangs clipped off the face. Headbands allowed.
