Students enrolled in the training program at Central Oregon School of Ballet need to follow the Dress Code. Every level has a specific dress code. The dress code is symbol of accomplishment and responsibly that goes along with advancement in the program. Students who do not abide by the dress code will not be allowed to participate in class. All girls must have a Mirella Cotton Camisole Leotard in the color specified for their level (Style No. M207C for children and M207L for older dancers), along with pink tights, pink ballet slippers (Canvas or Leather are both acceptable and there is no preference on split or full sole), hair in a tidy ballet bun and other specified accessories (see below.) Please purchase from a dance retail store (Encore Dance Supply is fully stocked with everything we require) or at an online dance wear site – the dance attire brands at Target and Walmart are not acceptable for performances and will not be allowed on stage.
