UNIFORM & GROOMING
TCDA's uniform options keep dancers safe and feeling like they belong.
It is important to layer up when dancing to avoid injury. Wear clothes that can be peeled away as you warm up and can be placed back on after dance to keep your muscles warm.
At TCDA we understand that different dancers will feel comfortable in different dance wear so we offer a range of options and encourage individuality whilst remaining within our overarching colour themes.
Base uniform items can be purchased from a range of specialised dance stores and department stores and our TCDA branded dance wear and accessories can be ordered directly from us.
Only approved footwear can be used to protect our specialised dance floors.
Hair must be worn tied back and jewellery removed for safety.
All Classical Ballet students need to purchase their own Tutu. These can be ordered at reception in Tamworth who can advise the correct colour for each grade. These Tutu's will form the basis of your costume for any performances and will be topped and embellished by KJ Costumes as part of your costume fee. Please order your Tutu as soon as possible so that your dancer will definitely have it in time for any performance.
