2019-2020 UNIFORM CHANGES

School of Nashville Ballet’s Academy Division, Young Men’s Scholarship Program, and Professional Training Division will transition to new uniforms during the 2019-2020 school year. Some previous uniform styles (click below for details) may be worn through December 2019. Beginning January 1, 2020, all students will be required to wear new, Nashville Ballet embroidered leotards and t-shirts. Nashville Ballet leotards and t-shirts will be available for purchase in August 2019.


STUDENT ATTIRE REQUIREMENTS

In the tradition of classical ballet and in encouragement of each dancer's positive self-image, we strive to have a clean, uniformed appearance for all students.

All students should wear street clothing and shoes over their ballet attire when coming to and from their classes. Extra layers ensure modesty and help muscles warm up and cool down properly. We encourage dancers of all ages to practice this healthy habit.

Clothing should be changed in dressing rooms only, not the lobby or hallways. Ballet shoes cannot be worn outdoors as this tracks dirt into the studio, can compromise the safety of our students and dancers, and is detrimental to the studio floors.

Jewelry, other than small earrings, may not be worn in the studios. Young ladies' hair should be pulled away from the face and secured neatly. A ballet bun (long hair) or with a headband/barrettes (short hair) is encouraged for all levels and is a requirement for Pre-Ballet II and III in the Children's Division through Level 7 in the Academy Division.

Ballet Bun

We want to provide you as many tools as possible to help create and maintain the standards of appearance to reinforce dancers’ positive self-image in the classroom or on stage. Watch the tutorials below on how to create the perfect ballet bun on yourself or someone else.
