What to Wear

Dress Code

No school uniforms.

No denim shorts or non-stretchy clothes.

 

Dance is about feeling good, therefore wear clothes that you are comfortable in and that make you feel good. Wear clothes you can move and stretch in.

 

Pants or tights past the knee is recommended for the comfort of floor work. i.e. on your knees

 

NOTE: Wearing Backstreet Dancewear is NOT compulsory - it is optional. However our Bubbly Bacsktreet Team would love to show you examples of what to wear so you can get funked up for class in your own way.

 

If you are interested in our range of dancewear - we sell them at the studio for all styles and all sizes. We also sell jazz shoes at our Studio. See Reception for advice.

 

 

CLOTHING FOR CLASSES

Wear appropriate exercise gear of your choice - no school uniforms or jeans/denim shorts allowed.

 

We encourage students to express themselves through their clothing (as well as in their dancing)

 

If younger students wear a skirt, please ensure tights/shorts are worn underneath so as not to expose underwear

 

We are not fussed with what you wear - as long as you can squat, move freely and feel great.

 

Wear clothes suitable for exercise - tights/pants/trackies, etc. 

 

For Jazz/Funk - preferably tights and not baggy pants.

 

SHOES FOR CLASSES

We require students to wear proper dance shoes for effective dancing:

 

Jazz/Funk Classes: Plain black ballet/jazz shoes or jazz/dance sneakers

 

We sell the following shoes at our studio:

Jazz slip ons plain black for $65

 

Ask Reception for advice on shoes.

Tip: Best to arrive 15-20 mins early before class to fit on some shoes.

 

Contemporary

Contemporary Shoes (we sell at the studio for $10 - $40)

Foot thongs or tan jazz shoes.

 

Knee pads (protection for knees due to high amount of floor work in this style of dance), available at studio for $29 a pair.

They are (most of the time) required for rehearsals & the Production. 

 

Teen Broadway Jazz Shoes

 

Character shoes are also required for Teen Broadway Jazz. Plain black, low heel. These are available to purchase from Cairns Sewing Centre on Anderson Street, Manunda, Cairns.

 

Broadway dancers also need to wear normal jazz shoes to class for warmups and learning routines. Broadway shoes are generally worn half way through each class.

 

Broadway shoes are required for 2 terms/6 months of the year.

 

Hip Hop: Any soft covered sneaker/sandshoe or high tops are acceptable for Hip Hop classes only.

 

Any colour is acceptable for class, however shoes MUST be 100% white for the Productions!

All Teeny Tot and Tiny Tot students are required to wear the appropriate shoes applicable to their style.

 

 

 

 

ACCESSORIES FOR CLASS

Strictly no jewellery or loose accessories to be worn. This can be distracting for the class and the student learning. It's also a safety measure.

 

GET FUNKED UP!!!

You can accessorise and wear hair/head accessories like headbands/ribbons/hats/etc

HAIR FOR CLASS

Hair tied back and no messy fringes please, including fringes that sweep over the eyes - we want to see your beautiful face. It's also for safety especially when doing turns.
