Participants may wear bike pants/tights/sports skirt/shorts and any t-shirt of their choice to classes. For beginners, any soft, split-soled ballets or even anklet socks are adequate. For performances at the end of the year, younger girls wear a high-necked club leotard, skirt (!new for 2019), shimmer tights and silver soft, split-soled ballet shoes. Similarly, ladies may wear any comfortable clothing to classes, and a dark blue polo shirt, black skirt, black 3/4 tights and silver soft, split-soled ballet shoes for performances.
A range of club leotards are available for an annual hire fee of $20. Club shirts may also be ordered for $20 (girls) and $25 (ladies). As our club grows, we have a limited number of second hand shoes available for hire for $15/year that are then returned to the club. Alternatively, you may decide to buy second shoes for a very reasonable price. New soft, split-soled ballet shoes may be ordered online from Bloch’s Dancewear, www.bloch.com.au for approximately $50 – $55 depending on size. The Parramatta store (02) 9635 9315 is always happy to help, and can access a wide range of fittings.
