WHAT TO WEAR

It is most important that you feel comfortable and confident in your dancewear! Any garments that are stretchy and allow freedom of movement in which you can also see your line will work. Please don't let self-consciousness be an issue. Be sure to visit The Shop at BDC in-store and online for all your dancewear needs! https://www.shopbdc.com/

LADIES: Traditionally a leotard, tights, and ballet slippers are worn in ballet classes. You may need a sports bra or other type of support under your leotard, and you can wear a ballet skirt or dance shorts over your leotard and tights if you like! A unitard is also a good choice. Pink, white or black ballet slippers are all ok though you can get started in socks or jazz shoes (if you cannot get slippers right away). Also, your hair needs to be secured firmly back and out of your eyes for safety during turns! 

GENTLEMEN: Traditionally a fitted T-shirt or mans leotard, tights, dance shorts, or fitted sweatpants, and ballet slippers are worn in ballet classes. A dance belt under your tights for safety and support is recommended. Black or white ballet slippers are best for men though you can wear socks or jazz shoes to get started (if you cannot get your slippers right away). If your hair is long enough to get in your eyes it is important to secure it back out of your face for safety during turns! 

Jazz pants, shorts, sweat pants, etc. Nothing too baggy. What you might wear to the gym. Comfortable clothes to move in and jazz shoes or dance sneakers ideal- if not, sneakers are fine. Character shoes/heels can also be worn for theater.

Jazz pants, shorts, sweat pants, leggings, etc. Nothing too baggy. What you might wear to the gym. Comfortable clothes to move in. Tap shoes or shoes with a hard sole that make a loud sound.
