DRESS CODE

A dress code is in place for every class, and each level has a different color. It is a valuable part of the students' professional development, learning camaraderie, and being part of a team. It also helps motivate the student, giving them something to work towards as they move to a new level. PDT's dress code is designed to assist teachers and students in observing proper alignment. The art of ballet has a rich historical tradition, which is an important part of instruction at PDT. Ballet etiquette and dress codes help foster discipline and unity among students and allow students and teachers alike to focus on proper placement and technique.

Watches, bracelets, necklaces, dangling earrings or heavy jewelry of any kind are NOT to be worn in class at any time. Tights must be worn inside the ballet shoe and be clean, with no holes or runs. Students without ballet shoes will be required to watch the class rather than participate.
