Uniforms are a great way to encourage a team atmosphere and give a sense of belonging. Wearing the TCDA uniform described here will also ensure that you or your dancer are dressed safely for dance.
In class, we wear black bottoms to suit the weather and dance discipline. Exam uniforms can also be worn to class.
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.
All Classical Ballet students need to purchase their own Tutu from Dance-X-S-ive in the Atrium in Tamworth. These Tutu's will form the basis of your costume for any performances and 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.
Tutu colours will vary based on your ballet grade at TCDA. Our staff or Kerry at Dance-X-S-ive can advise you of which colour you will need if you are unsure.
