UNIFORMS: “Inspiration Dance Academy has a compulsory uniform policy.” Failure to comply with this policy may result in the need for disciplinary action. Hair must be pulled back neatly and secure for every class. It is compulsory for all ballet students in classes Beginner and above to wear their hair in a bun. Grooming is an important part of a child’s training in the areas of pride and attitude. Inspiration Dance Academy believes the students also benefit from a team uniform. Inspiration Dance Academy uniforms are sold each year at the studio. 

There is a choice of different styles such as leotards, tights, shorts, crossovers and jackets. We will send out a letter for orders in February if you would like to purchase any of these items. Please see Miss Hayley if you would like to look at some samples. Demonstration Day which is held mid year has a compulsory uniform and this can be worn throughout the year to classes. Demonstration Day Compulsory uniform can be seen below 

Demonstration Day is not a concert but a demonstration of the children’s class work. The children will display on stage the class work that they have been working on throughout the year. They will be presented with an award at the Presentation for their participation and hard work. This will be a wonderful opportunity for parents, grandparents, family and friends to come and watch what each child has been working towards for the first half of the year.
