COVID-19 UPDATE: Dance Uniform ordering is temporarily suspended. We look forward to getting you your dance outfits and supplies when it's safe to do so. Until that time, uniforms can be ordered through Stage Center Akron.

Dance class uniform details are outlined below.  Dance uniforms should be worn for either in-person or virtual classes.

Ballet - Girls:

Assigned Class Leotards or Costume with Skin-toned Tights and Pink or Skin-Toned Ballet Slippers.

Ballet dancers should wear a ballet bun with no bangs, unless other character arrangements are called for by the instructor, dance program coordinator, or artistic director.  Students are welcome to wear two buns or pigtails for Pre-Ballet & Tumbling classes, so it does not hurt the dancer’s head to do a somersault.
