Hazel Scott School of Dance uniform
In order for pupils to get the most out of their dance lessons they need to be dressed appropriately, in proper dance uniform allowing them to develop a sense of togetherness, poise and grace. Equally important is the teacher’s need to see the line of the body as this allows a correct technique to be developed. A list of uniform for the different dance classes are detailed below and can be ordered from Hazel by filling in an order form available from Hazel.
In the interest of Health and Safety and safe dance practice jewellery should not be worn. It is important for pupils to have their hair up, preferably in a bun so that the back of the neck is visible. This also gives a sense of neatness, will aid poise and correct posture. Dance Shoes should fit well so that the feet are snug in the dance shoes. Please buy shoes that fit correctly. Pupils will need a dance bag to transport their dance uniform and shoes in.
Dance shoes should never be worn outside please put them on in the changing room. For younger children taking Tap dancing lessons I suggest takin the laces out and replacing them with a loop of black elastic sewn in their place. This then aids children to change their shoes quickly and without fuss. Make the elastic so it stretches when the foot goes in and snug, but not too tight when the foot is in the shoe. Please name all your child’s belongings, including dance shoes, uniform, sweatshirts, jackets, coats etc. Many items get misplaced and I can return items quickly if they are named. Please have your child bring a named filled water bottle with them to class each week. We work hard and need to re-hydrate especially in the summer months.
