UNIFORM

All uniform requirements can be purchased through Dance Pacific, situated at:  351 Colombo Street Christchurch

Our uniform is registered on their database, so you only need to indicate which grade you are looking for and they can professionally fit your dancer.

We are happy to “on sell” shoes and uniform for students as they grow out of it. Please place in a zip lock bag labelled with your name and selling price. A uniform sale will be organised for the beginning of each year and will be advised.

Why a Dress Code?

A dress code ensures that a teacher will be able to see a dancer’s alignment and positioning. The teacher needs to be able to see a dancer's mistakes. Baggy clothing can mask bad habits, making corrections impossible. A dress code will also teach students discipline, helping with overall focus and energy. By "dressing the part," dancers feel like dancers.
