Dress Code & Policies

At Heartland Conservatory of Dance, and in professional ballet schools around the world, each class level of students wears the same leotard color to eliminate visual clutter so teachers can more easily see, define, and correct dance technique.

GIRLS’ BALLET IMPORTANT NOTE: Hair must be tightly secured. Girls must wear pink ballet shoes with elastic sewn across instep. No underwear is necessary under tights and leotard. No gum.

In an effort to promote equality, diversity, and inclusion students may choose to
wear either pink tights and shoes or flesh toned tights and flesh toned ballet
shoes or pointe shoes. Either way, the tights must match the shoe.
