Dance Attire

Energetiks Dancewear

Outlined below is the standard dance attire which is recommended for lessons, and compulsory for exams and workshops. Students have shown interest in wearing previous costumes / dancewear, so alternative leotards and tights will be accepted in lessons. The recommended dance attire will allow for necessary technique development as well as provide a professional outlook. Hip Hop students are welcome to wear alternative dancewear with sneakers.

With the exception of pink ballet skirts and the Intrinsic uniform (jacket, v-neck top and hip hop pants), all dancewear can be purchased from local dancewear shops including:

  • Sammy's Room - Cnr Ferguson St & Logan Rd, Underwood
    (ph 3341 0521)

Sarah Hyndman can assist with buying or selling (on consignment) second-hand dancewear (email: sariefaerie@hotmail.com or phone: 0411 617 914).

Hair: Please ensure that hair is always tidy and away from the face. With the exception of Hip Hop and Foundation Dance classes, girls' hair should be worn in a bun. For exams and other presentations, a black ribbon (1cm wide) is tied in a bow at the top of the bun.
