Due to the nature of dancing there are some basic requirements that need to be met in terms of footwear and clothing. We aim to keep things simple and our uniform conforms to the regulations set out by the IDTA for dancewear. Adults do not need regulation uniform however you are asked to wear appropriate clothing and correct shoes for all classes.

Uniform is available from our My Dance Store website.

K2 branded items are available to order here: Order form

Cheerleading leotards, skirts and K2 Dance Academy printed clothing and bags are only available directly from K2 Dance Academy here.

HAIR

Long hair must be tied back off the face for all lessons. All ballet classes require a bun (use our guide to doing a ballet bun if you are unsure). Cheerleaders, Street Dance and Break Dance class may wear a high pony tail, on the crown of the head. All other classes hair should be in a bun or plaits, neat without fly away bits or fringes.
