Dress Code for SiSu Dance Academy

Grooming

Grooming is an essential part of correct dance training. At SiSu Dance Academy, we are assisting our dancers by preparing them in class to portray themselves in a polished presentation on stage. Students who come to class with beautiful hair, correct dress, and a neat appearance excel in their dance work and begin to see themselves as a dancer. To this end, we have a dress code to prepare your dancer for the disciplined expectations of a professional dance environment.

Female Dress Code

Ballet Slippers

Dancers are required to wear canvas or cloth, split-sole slippers that enhance their training, movement, and appearance. Ballet slippers are the most important part of your dancer’s equipment and can affect their ability to articulate foot movement.

Pointe Shoes

Several styles of pointe shoes are acceptable and endorsed by SiSu Dance Academy. These approved brands assist dancers in executing their pointe work technique with greater precision, articulation, and are more aesthetically pleasing. Please make sure to have Pointe Shoes approved by the Director before sewing ribbons and elastics.
