Information for Students & Parents

Ballet Wear

Ballet Wear required will be on sale on the following days at the Ashgrove Avenue Hall, 24 - 30 Ashgrove Avenue, ASHGROVE. Please enter up the Ramp

We prefer Ballet wear to be purchased at these times if possible, rather than at lesson times, so it does not interrupt the classes. If these times are not convenient please let us know, and we will arrange another suitable time.

Sunday 18 January 9.00am 12.00pm

Thursday 22 January 4.00pm 6.00pm

Saturday 24th January 10.00am 3.00pm

General Grooming Requirements

Students hair is to be neatly tied back, preferably in a bun. Please ensure there is no loose fringe on the face. Also, jewellery should not be worn during class as this can potentially be dangerous to other students.
