Usually in ballet, you would wear a leotard( colours change for different grades., or boys wear blue leggings with white leotard suit, skin coloured tights or socks for younger grades, a skirt the same colour as the leotard and soft ballet shoes. either leather or satin. For character work you wear a long black skirt with ribbons around the bottom and black shoes with a slight heel. You can also wear pointshoes .


For girls--A uni-tard, tights and slippers (or perhaps Pointe shoes).

For boys: A T-shirt, dance belt, tights and soft slippers.For a performance--actual costumes.
