Dress Code

In the proud tradition of classical ballet and in encouragement of each dancer’s positive self-image, we strive to have a clean, uniformed appearance for all our students. Please help us achieve this goal by purchasing leotards, tights and ballet shoes that match our dress code requirements and by fixing your child’s hair for class in the appropriate manner as listed.

Morris Costumes (4300 Monroe Rd, Charlotte, NC, 28205) carries School of Dance dress code attire. Tutu.com no longer stocks most School of Dance dress code, but may have overstock dress code items remaining for sale.
