Dress Code

Ballet class uniforms help to instill discipline and uniformity, as well as allowing the teacher to observe and correct a students line and technique without distracting attire. We have chosen different colors for each level.

 

The selected Texas Metropolitan Ballet dance studio leotards can be found at Killeen's premier dance store

Criston's Dancewear located at 5516 MLK Blvd., Killeen, TX  76543.  Approved styles & colors per level will be kept in stock by the store. Other approved styles are available to order.  Criston's also stocks shoes and tights for all levels.

​The teacher or director has the final say on all dance clothing, including the style and fit of ballet slippers and pointe shoes.  Please check the return policy and leave the tags on until the article has been approved.

PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE LEOTARDS UNTIL AN INSTRUCTOR HAS CONFIRMED THE STUDENT'S LEVEL
