Uniform

Ballet Kukan Academy follows Royal Academy of Dance uniform system. All students must follow this uniform system.

Having an uniform in a ballet class is very important for various reasons. First of all, it is easier for the teachers to see each student's alignment, which makes teachers to correct each of the student's posture quickly.
The students also can see their alignment themselves easier that they understand where to correct themselves. All the students are in the same attire that no uniform competition happens in the class. The students must focus the contents they learn, not about the fashion they wear. The students' hair must be in a neat bun from Primary that they can develop their beautiful neck line, which continues to body alignment.

All other classes and some ballet classes have freedom to choose leotard for the students to enjoy. Please follow the uniform list below.

*Ballet Kukan Academy has a right to refuse offering services if this uniform policy would be violated.
