Required Uniform

The details for the required uniform for each of the classes is included in this document, which is in PDF format (if you do not have Adobe Reader you can download it for free).

Happy Feet uniform must be worn in class. Students are required to have the full uniform by the time they have completed their first three weeks. This is essential to the school's requirements. Please ensure that uniform is always clean and in good condition. Please make sure all parts of uniform are clearly marked with pupils' names.

Jewellery, face paints, tattoos, hair accessories and nail varnish are not to be worn at class.

'A dancer should always be well-groomed. It is a large part of the self-discipline which is an essential part of the dance training itself.'

Hair

Must be worn up in the required manner for all classes. A high pony-tail with small black hair tie or a neat bun. All fringes must be neatly pinned back off the face. Short hair must be taken away from the face and neck as much as possible. No fringes.This allows full lines of the neck and head to be seen, and importantly is not a distraction to the pupil.
