  • Dancing in Pairs
  • Increased coordination exercises
  • Increased exercises in turnout and turn in

Hair Etiquette – All Levels

Classical ballet dancers have always been proud of their perfect grooming – it is and always will be a part of who they are –

The NTBS prides itself in being a school that clearly teaches right and wrong in the world of Ballet.

The right way, the only way, is for all girls to wear their hair in a bun (with a hairnet) and all hair off their face for every class and rehearsal. The uniform includes a headband.

The NTBS recognises that due to coming straight from school – with maybe dad, a nanny or a grandparent the hair regulations cannot always be adhered to – if this is the case the class teacher will be more than happy to do your child’s hair as long as appropriate hair equipment is provided:–

Strong Elastic Band – Strong Hair Pins – Hairnet – Hairspray – Brush
