Uniform

At the Wendy Morton Academy of Dance, we take pride in our appearance and we have a strict uniform that should be adhered to at all times. Correct dance shoes should be worn by all students whilst attending classes. Also please ensure children are always wearing socks or tights inside their shoes to avoid injury.

The uniform colours are black and white. We have a range of Academy uniform available to purchase from the studio or from Elite Dancewear including;

  • T-shirts (unisex)

  • Vest tops

  • Tracksuit Jackets - not to be worn in class

  • Zip up small jackets that can be worn in class (girls only)

Information on prices and sizes are available on the notice board in reception.

Hair MUST be tied back at all times and is preferred in a bun for ballet and acrobatics classes. The academy has the right to refuse admission to anybody not suitably dressed for class.

Please note, the uniform policy is in place for student and staff safety purposes to reduce the risk of injury.

No make up or jewellery should be worn in any examination. Please also ensure uniform and shoes are clean and tidy.
