Bluegrass Youth Ballet does have a dress code. Please refer to the information listed below for the appropriate dance attire for each level.

Creative Movement and Pre-Ballet 1 and 2:

dance-ballet-youthStudents in these levels are required to wear the official BYB uniform sold in our boutique. It is a light pink leotard embroidered with the BYB logo (available in camisole, short sleeves and long sleeves), and it has a chiffon skirt attached. Also, light pink footed-tights, and pink leather ballet shoes are required. During the warmer months students in Creative Movement and Pre-Ballet can wear short white socks in place of tights if they choose. Hair must be worn in a tight bun for each class. For safety reasons please refrain from wearing jewelry to class.

Levels Beginning A – Pre-Professional (Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced):

These levels must wear the royal blue BYB embroidered uniform leotard (available in camisole and tank) available in our boutique.  Students must wear pink footed or convertible tights (seams are preferred), pink canvas or leather ballet shoes, and hair must be pulled back in a tight bun for all classes. For safety purposes, jewelry should be removed before entering class.

**On Saturdays Levels Advanced and Pre-Professional are permitted to wear any style and color leotard for classes and rehearsals.


Boys should wear a white T-shirt, black tights or shorts, white socks and black or white leather ballet shoes.

Modern Classes:

Modern class is usually taken in bare feet. Convertible tights are recommended so students can roll them up and dance with bare feet. The BYB uniform leotard can be worn for Modern. Hair must be in a ponytail or in a bun.


There is no specific dress code for Adult classes. Please wear comfortable clothing that will not restrict movement in any way. Adults may wear dancewear or exercise attire if they wish. Ballet shoes are recommended.
