Ballet shoes should fit (almost exactly) with the toes flat and to the end of the shoe. The shoe will mould to the foot as they are worn. Elastics need to fit snuggly over the instep so please re-sew if they are baggy.
Tap shoes should fit well, so the shoe shouldn’t have more than 1cm growing room. This enables the dancer to make a good, strong sound with the toe tap.
Low-heeled style must be worn for grades 1 & 2.
Cuban heel height is for grades 3+
Fit is similar to ordinary shoes and must fit securely.
Must be fitted by a professional. Please contact The Dance Spot, Chippenham to book an appointment.
Approved hairstyles for dance classes
Long hair should be in a tidy bun for ballet.
Shorter hair must be clipped away from the eyes or held back with a band.
Tap, Modern, Contemporary
Hair should be secured up for Tap & Modern. For Contemporary, we recommend a low/flat hairstyle so floor work is not restricted.
