L'Arabesque Ballet

RAD Ballet Uniform

The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) is one of the world's most prestigious and influential training and education establishments for dance. If you are studying ballet under regulations set out by the RAD then you will be required to wear a specific uniform.

A dancer should always be perfectly dressed and groomed. It is part of the discipline that goes hand in hand with the dance training itself. It gives children a sense of belonging and makes them feel part of something special. Feeling prepared and ready in the "right" outfit will also greatly enhance a child's attitude towards ballet, in class.

On the practical level, the wearing of a correctly fitting leotard, for instance, enables the student to move freely, whilst helping the teacher to check and correct alignment .

Please note that L'Arabesque Ballet is strict with its students appearance and that all parents will be required to respect its guideline.

How to Make a Ballet Bun

A proper ballet bun is essential. It meets the standard expectation and appearance of ballerinas and as such is part of the uniform requirement.

Ballet buns have a functional purpose, as well as being aesthetic. They allow the instructor and dancer to see  the line that is created by the shoulders, necks, arms and back and allows the teacher to make appropriate corrections. The buns prevents distractions that can be caused by a flying pony tail during leaps or jumps.

It also prevents accidents from happening from little dancers who may run around and hit each other blinded by hair in their face, improperly tucked away.
