– BBS lavender leotard, pink ballet shoes, pink ballet tights
– BBS black ballet tights and white leotard, with white or black shoes, and white socks.

Optional extras include : ballet wraparound cardigans and leg warmers.
You must purchase this uniform from our school shop where it will be ready and waiting for you and your child upon your arrival.
Please tie long hair back in a secure bun with fringes pinned away from the face. Please use and use a restraining strap if children need to wear glasses.
For your initial trial sessions you do not need to purchase the uniform.
