Uniform Requirements

At First Steps our classes from Nursery level up to Grade 8 ballet have specific uniform requirements that are part of the schools rules.

The school uniform guidelines must be adhered to at all times. Grooming is an essential part of the performing arts and your child should be correctly presented for each class that they attend.

New starters, and those coming to trial classes, can come dressed in clothes they are comfortable moving around in. The uniform may be purchased directly from the school or from other leading dance-wear providers online.
