Uniform is an important part of the class. Whilst dancing can be a fun hobby, it also requires a level of discipline. Being well groomed and wearing the correct clothing is part of that discipline. Long hair should be tied back off the face (preferably in a bun if possible) and no jewellery is to be worn in class.
Those who are new to the school are not expected to have the uniform before trying out their first class. Only once they have tried out and have decided that they want to commit to attending regularly, then the correct uniform can be purchased.
Uniform is available to purchase on a Saturday morning at Walthamstow Academy between 9am and 12pm
We are mindful of many factors affecting students with relation to clothing, including sensory issues and gender identity. Therefore in the interests of inclusivity, we are very willing to discuss alternative options. with any student who is not comfortable wearing the assigned uniform as stated below,
