Class Uniforms

Mi-Cher Dance Academy students take pride in their dance practice. Having your dancer in the proper uniform for class will enable them to concentrate on their dance practice and set them up for success. 

ALL STUDENTS:

  1. Clean hands and faces are an absolute must!

  2. All ballet attire must also be clean and mended if holes or runs appear.

  3. Hair must be done in an appropriate style.  Students with shorter hair must have hair pulled back off their face. ALL other students must have buns. Click here for a great YouTube video on making a ballet bun. 

  4. Please DO NOT wear perfume, as some people are allergic.

  5. It is preferred that the students do not wear bright/dark nail polish to class.

  6. Students who are not dressed properly may be asked to sit out the class.

 

NOTE: We recommend purchasing dance uniforms from Limbers Dancewear, The Dance Shop, Dance Box, another dance store, or sometimes Amazon has the items.
