Dress Code Policies

Dress Code Policies

MBC offers all the appropriate attire for ballet classes. Leotards MUST be purchased through MBC, but tights and shoes may be purchased elsewhere. We do recommend using our tights and shoes if possible as they are priced competitively with other brands and are the color and fit that we prefer the dancers to have.

Boys attire and supplementary attire is either in stock or can be ordered through our office and takes about 1 week to receive.

Dancers registering for summer sessions do NOT need to purchased a class leotard as we will be using the summer to place them for the fall.

Dress code is more lax in the summer, but we do ask that all dancers taking ballet are in a leotard of some kind, tights and ballet slippers. Hair should be pulled off the face and in a bun for intermediate and advanced classes.
