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

Please note: any Dance/Yoga grip socks are now required for Modern and Acro classes due to COVID 19 regulations. 


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.
