a journey with purpose
By stepping on the path that leads through the Enchanted Forest, your child has begun a journey that will lead him or her through a complete classical ballet education. The end result being, a physically strong and mentally resilient young adult who is able to navigate the challenges of life with grace, mindfulness, and an assured sense of self-command.

Very Important things to know
In the world of ballet, tights are considered the undergarment of the ladies uniform and so it is not correct for girls to wear regular panties underneath tights. Our approved retailers carry an assortment of dance underwear and bras for those who need a little extra support. Boys should purchase dance belts/shirt-belts under the advisement of the school director.
Arriving and Leaving:
It is never appropriate to wear dance clothing in public, no matter what the age. Wearing dance shoes outside the school is harmful to both the dance shoes and our studio floor. ALL students must change out of their dance shoes into street shoes and wear some type of cover-up or clothing that fully covers the uniform.
Girls are expected to come to class with hair in a classical ballet bun - please see the tutorial above. If the hair is too short to make a bun, the hair must be securely pulled up and away from the face.
Winter Wear and Warm-ups:
It is advisable to purchase a dance sweater for the winter months. These are available in a number of brands, however it is required that they be pink and wrap-style. Warm-ups (leg warmers, scarves, booties, sweatpants, etc.) are not allowed in the studio but may be used in preparation for class while warming up outside the studio.
