Uniform

Quality Dance Wear for all Classes

 

What To Wear

At Freesoles Dance we have a branded uniform for all classes.

Appropriate uniform is imperative for safe and correct learning because it shows the alignment and posture of each dancer.
Our uniform has been specially selected to enhance this, and allows our teachers to assess exactly what each child requires in order to further their learning and technical understanding of their chosen dance style.

Our uniform is not split into 'boys' and 'girls'. We encourage pupils to wear what they feel comfortable in for class. This can either be a leotard, or a Freesoles t-shirt and leggings/cycling shorts. Whilst we are happy for children to choose their uniform for comfort and individuality in class, the IDTA sets the rules for what is to be worn in examinations.

Printed items cannot be returned so if you have any questions please ask us BEFORE ordering. Follow the links below to purchase uniform and you will find size guides on each item.

Ballet

Ballet shoes should always match the dancer's skin tone. We recommend full-sole leather ballet shoes (although we know this isn't possible in all shades).
For babies to the end of primary grade, ballet shoes are worn with socks to match. From grade 1 upwards dancers wear ballet tights to match their shoes.
Dancers will only wear pointe shoes when this is recommended by their dance teacher.

For pink socks/shoes, and tights in ALL shades, see link above. We have separate links below for other nude shades of socks and shoes:

Tap

Black tap shoes for all grades.
For infant classes we recommend velcro or elastic fastenings so we do not spend class time tying the laces of each child. Once your dancers can reliably tie their own laces, we are happy for them to have any black tap shoe.

See above for socks and tights.

Ballroom & Latin

We recommend the open toe silver shoe, or a black closed toe character shoe.
