Uniform

Inspire Academy of Dance has its own set uniform, available to purchase directly from our very own dance shop.

Please note that ballet shoes should be 2 shoe sizes bigger than your child’s normal shoe size. The gap gets smaller when the sizes are larger. From size 1, decrease this gap by one shoe size.

Hair/Jewellery

Please ensure hair is off the face and is tied up for all classes.

Hair should be in a ballet bun for all ballet classes. Other arrangements will be made for shows and exams.

Due to health & safety it is required that students do not wear jewellery to class.

 

Watching Week

We encourage all parents to come to our watching week at the end of each term to observe their child’s progress. It is a good opportunity for you to see what your child has been getting up to in class.

We do not allow parents to watch classes throughout the term, unless the student is new, as we feel children excel more without distractions. They tend to develop better as dancers and it is a nice opportunity for children to gain social skills with others.

We will email towards the end of term to confirm when watching week will be for each location.

*Please note* we do not run our watching week during show term as we want to keep the dances a surprise for the show!
