Ballet Kit - Girls

Nursery Classes - uniform is optional in these classes - children may wear anything that allows freedom of movement and bare feet or slipper socks with rubber grips are fine for those who don't have ballet shoes.  However, if you want to get some proper dance kit I suggest you get the following items that can be worn in the following classes school-age which do have a uniform. This uniform is also easy to obtain through the school and is sometimes available to buy or sell second-hand.

 

'Chloe' RAD regulation cotton lycra short-sleeved cotton/lycra leotard in Lilac

Lilac or pink crossover cardigan if required for warmth (available in acrylic wool or cotton lycra) Pink ballet socks and pink leather or satin ballet shoes with elastics.  

Pink leather or satin ballet shoes with pink elastic fitted

Pre-Primary & Primary Classes

As above but with the addition of a matching lilac georgette RAD regulation skirt - please do not buy the wrapover version of these with velcro attachments or ties, as they are impractical in class.  The elasticated-waist skirts with the fixed wrapover panel are the best design and meet exam regulation requirements.

Grades 1, 2 & 3

'Aimee' RAD regulation sleeveless leotard in lavender with matching waist elastic

Lavender or pink crossover cardigan if required for warmth (available in acrylic wool or cotton lycra)

Pink ballet socks

Pink leather or satin ballet shoes with pink elastic fitted

Black character skirt with ribbons (these can be made to measure for your child or you can make your own, but please ask for details/instructions before making)

Black low-heel character shoes I have a stock of character skirts and shoes to loan for exams for those who don't have their own. Please bring some outdoor shoes eg school shoes to class instead of character shoes if you don't have any..

Grades 4 & 5

'Faith' RAD regulation sleeveless ruched-front leotard in Teal cotton lycra with matching waist elastic, crossover cardigan if required for warmth (available in acrylic wool or cotton lycra)

Pink ballet tights or socks

Pink leather or satin shoes with pink ribbons fitted

Character skirt & shoes as above (Grade 4 upwards wear the higher Cuban-Heeled shoes if possible)

 

Grade 6, 7 & 8

Navy leotard - own choice of style with matching navy chiffon circular skirt (there are some skirts for exam loan).  Pink ballet tights and pink shoes with ribbons.  The charcater kit is still required for the Higher Grades.

Higher Grades 6,7 & 8

As for Grades 3-5 but with the addition of a circular chiffon skirt in navy blue.  I have a stock of these which are loaned for exams.  Pupils are not required to purchase their own for class unless they wish to do so.
