Dress Code

At North Reading School of Ballet, we adhere to the following dress code. Proper dress code allows for dancers to move properly and for teachers to see students alignment and posture, minimizes distractions and creates a uniform look in the class. By “dressing the part” dancers feel like part of the group. Our goal is to encourage the team spirit and the focus and respect that learning the art of dance requires.  

All students MUST have hair pulled back away from face. A bun is required for all ballet classes.  No loose jewelry, accessories. 

Young Dancer items may be purchased through the main office. On Your Toes in Peabody carries everything needed for our complete dress code and they have a list at the store for your convenience.
