Where can I purchase the required class uniform?
Located on County Line Road and has a copy of the dress code required for all levels of CTM School of Dance classes. Tell the sales person that your child is a student of Abigail Patterson at Cross-Tied Ministries School of Dance and the class / level she is in. They will tell you what you need and they carry everything that is required.
This company carries some items, but not all. Please do not order shoes, unless you are ordering a replacement in the same size your child is already wearing. Always be sure to get fitted and then have your shoes approved.
Use CTM’s code when checking out: TP38039
**This means no dance wear items from Walmart/Target!**
Classical ballet bun – see instructions on the next page.
**No sock buns**
Intro to Ballet, Ballet I: If your child has extremely fine/thin or short hair and it’s a struggle to get the hair up, please see the instructor for some helpful tips.
**It is a requirement for ballet students to have hair up appropriately. Pony tails are NOT allowed for ballet classes.**
Neat classical ballet bun secured with plenty of hairpins.
Hairnet same color as girl’s hair is recommended.
All whispies sprayed down.
Short Hair: Too short for bun (chin and above) – must be neatly pulled back from face and secured with hair elastics and barrettes.
Jazz Students: ponytail with hair out of the face is appropriate with hair elastic – not scruchies. However, if the student’s jazz class is before ballet – it is best if they have it in a bun to save time.
**Students who do not follow these dress/hair code rules may be asked to sit out of class.**
A dress code will teach students discipline, helping with overall focus and energy. By "dressing the part," dancers feel like dancers. Dress codes can also create unity among the dancers instead of causing a few dancers to stand out, much like a school uniform policy. Dress codes go a long way in minimizing distractions and help give classes a unified look.
We want all our students to feel equal and a part of something! By having uniforms, it allows each dancer to feel part of that class. Dancers are still able to show their uniqueness and personality through their dancing.
When all dancers are in proper uniform, they are showing their instructor respect. It also helps the instructor when giving corrections to individual students or the entire class.
And last, but not least, feeling the part. When you feel ready for a specific class and look the part, you will dance the part!
