The Uniform Policy at Portland School of Ballet is as important to our students’ dance training as building strength in their muscles and technique. Adherence to the uniform policy will teach students discipline and helps with overall focus within a class. Along with showing respect for this art form through classroom conduct, a dress code enforces that respect by fostering the discipline required to learn the art of ballet. Classes and performance will have a polished unified look and lead to students feeling accomplished in their work.

All uniforms must be purchased through Petite Jete Dance Boutique (petitjetedance.com) to ensure the correct brand and style. Students in levels S4-CORPS who participate in more than 2 classes per week must have at least one uniform leotard and skirt, however, they will be allowed to wear different style leotards in class ONLY if they are in the same color as their level uniform. The uniform will be used in the Year End Showcase by all levels in the school.

Placement

Students will be placed in classes which are appropriate for their level of physical and mental development. If at any time, the director feels that the placement is incorrect, the student will be changed to the appropriate level. Conferences should be scheduled by appointment.

 

Attendance

Students are required to take ALL classes offered, so that they may continue to advance technically. If they can not participate due to illness or injury, we advise them to watch class. Classes are not transferable and there are no refunds for classes missed for any reason. In the case of absence, please call the school and leave a message with the reason for your absence prior to class time. Makeup classes, due to illness, snow days, holidays during non-vacation days, must be scheduled in the same level or lower level, in the same term in which they are missed. Custom class schedules can be arranged on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the School Director.

 

It is the policy of the Portland School of Ballet to promote a learning work environment that is free of all forms of harassment. Harassment on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, military or veteran status undermines the basic principles of community. It is not acceptable behavior at the school and will not be tolerated.
