What a dancer wears and how he/she presents himself/herself is important. As with any intensive sport, the dance uniform is a required discipline and also allows the teacher to easily see what each student is doing, as well as how the group is moving together. And as with any performing art, dancers learn presentation through daily practice. Starting at the Brilliante levels, each Academy of Ballet Fantastique class has a specific uniform that the dancers are required to wear. Students at all levels and in all classes must conform to official class attire policy in order to participate in classes and rehearsals.
