Student Handbook & Attire Requirements


Click here to download the School of Nashville Ballet Student Handbook

 

In the tradition of classical ballet and in encouragement of each dancer's positive self-image, we strive to have a clean, uniformed appearance for all students.

In addition to the uniforms listed below, jewelry, other than small earrings, may not be worn in the studios. Hair should be pulled away from the face in a ballet bun (long hair) or with a headband / barrettes (short hair). This is a requirement for all levels - including the Children's Program.
