MBSA IS REVISING THE DRESS CODE FOR THE 2015-16 SCHOOL YEAR. PLEASE CHECK BACK SOON FOR MORE COMPETE DETAILS. WE RECOMMEND WAITING TO PURCHASE NEW CLASS ATTIRE ITEMS UNTIL THIS INFORMATION BECOMES AVAILABLE.
For summer classes, girls should wear a solid color leotard, pink tights and pink ballet shoes. Boys in a white t-shirt, black shorts, white socks and black ballet shoes.
The fall 2015-16 attire requirements will be posted as soon as they become available.
Hair Requirements for all students: All girls with hair chin length or longer must wear their hair in a traditional ballet bun for every class. Girls and boys with very short hair must have their hair secured neatly off their face in a way that will not distract from class (headbands are not recommended because they fall out easily when children dance). Boys with long hair must secure it back in a neat ponytail for class.
