Pointe

Dress code is similar to ballet, but with the addition of pointe shoes.  Shoes must be fit by a professional, and any changes in shoe type must be approved by the teacher.  The teacher of Basic Pointe students must approve all new shoes, even of the same type, to ensure fit and safety.  Shoes should be sewn securely, with both elastic and ribbons, for safety and aesthetics.  Students should attempt to sew their own shoes.  Basic Pointe students should expect to use one to two pairs of pointe shoes in a school year.  Intermediate Pointe students should expect to use two to three pairs of pointe shoes in a school year.  Advanced and Perfection students should expect to use four or more pairs of pointe shoes in a school year.  Shoes are expected to be clean and broken in for all performances.
