Dress Code

Boston Ballet School Adult Dance Program

The only traditional ballet attire we require of our adult students is ballet slippers. Otherwise, students wear what is easy to move in and makes them most at ease. For some, this is the traditional leotard and tights; for others, this is closer to typical workout clothing – sweats, leggings, t-shirts. Whatever you choose to wear, we ask that it be form-fitted, stretchy, allow for freedom of movement and be comfortable. Longer hair should be pulled back away from the face and dangling jewelry is discouraged.
