Uniform

Uniform

All students are required to wear the school uniform to class. Appearance is an integral part of the discipline of dance. Please ensure that students come to class well groomed, including neat hair in a bun and no baggy clothing or jewellery please, for safety reasons.

The uniform can be purchased from any dance wear shop, however we recommend Capezio, as they have our uniform listed. If you let them know that you are enrolled with the Elwood School of Dance they will know exactly what you need!  Visit capezioaustralia.com for store locations.

IMG_1529Crossovers and other useful info

We recommend that all students have a cross-over to keep warm on cooler days.
From Stage 4 and above, character shoes may be required.

*Demi-Pointe and Pointe shoe information will be advised as required.

Note: Students who attend both Jazz and Ballet classes can wear the same pink uniform for both dance styles.

Where to buy?

The Elwood School of Dance uniform can be bought from any Capezio brand outlet store. If you visit a Capezio store and let them know you are enrolled at Elwood School of Dance, they will be able to advise you on exactly what you need.

Why is it important for shoes to fit correctly?

Shoes that are too small or too big are dangerous to work in, students will be asked to remove their shoes by teachers if they don’t fit properly. The majority of injuries a dancer sustains are in the lower leg, one way to help prevent this is to ensure your dance shoes fit correctly.
