The school follows the uniform recommended by the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD). Different classes/levels require different coloured uniform.


For all uniform please visit the Dragonflies Dance online shop: https://drd.mydancestore.co.uk/

Please note

if you need to return uniform to the store for a different size, send your proof of posting (photograph of receipt) to my dance store who will then give you a code in order to get free postage off your next order - more details can be found under the refund section on the site.


Students should wear uniform to their dancing classes that fits correctly. Students should have hair in a classical bun for Ballet class and off the face (for example in a pony tail) for Modern Theatre and Tap classes. Hair should be in a low bun for Acrobatics classes. Adult learners may wear anything they feel comfortable dancing in.


Dragonflies Dance personalised T-shirts, Hoodys and Onesies are also available please use the merchandise order form and order those directly from the school.
