2015-2016 New Leotard Colors!

As the 2015-2016 season of dance at The Louisville Ballet School approaches, we are excited to announce the beautiful new dress code leotard colors and styles forgirls and young ladies. Classical styles for boys and young men have also been updated.

The student dress code maintains the tradition and aesthetic of classical ballet and allows instructors to see the full lines of the students’ bodies. As such, all students must wear the required uniform colors and styles. Please reference the chart below for girls’ and young ladies’ dress code leotard colors and styles. Click here to view an excerpt of the Student Handbook for more detailed uniform requirements for each level and complete descriptions for boys and young men.

Required styles and colors are reasonably priced and are currently only available for purchase at Kinney Dancewear, 1850 South Hurstbourne Parkway. If Kinney Dancewear is out of required colors or sizes, students may wear their dance wear from last year until they are able to purchase the new colors/ styles.
