The Uniform Policy at Portland School of Ballet is to teach students discipline and help with overall focus in class. Following a dress code enforces 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.
