The importance of wearing a uniform

A uniform is an important addition to belonging to Stepnout Performing Arts. It creates an identity and sense of belonging both at the studio and in the public arena. Studio pride is a wonderful way for students to strive to be the best dancer they can be.

The hoodie has been a great addition for our performance teams as they have attended competitions throughout the year. It has shown everyone where they dance and they have been proud to be part of these teams at our studio.

Uniforms encourage discipline. As much as dancing is enjoyable, discipline is required to ensure everyone in class receives a high standard of teaching. Uniforms are a reminder that there are rules to follow and respect.

The uniform is very practical. It enables the teachers to assist students in learning to dance. It provides staff with the ability to see all movement when giving instruction. It prevents economic and social differences being experienced at the studio. The peer pressure to buy expensive labels is taken out. As our uniform is very affordable it keeps the price down for parents.

Wearing a uniform helps the students switch on to dancing when in class by association. It prevents them looking sloppy and untidy. A tidy outfit translates to a focused dancer.

Regarding safety and recognition, the uniform enables staff to see who is new to the studio or trying out if all our students are wearing the uniform. We are heading into a period where students will be trying out different classes and the uniform will ensure that staff know they are already part of the studio.

At the beginning of last term Liz decided that staff needed to ensure all students were in uniform. As the term moved along and everyone became consumed with routines and costumes the staff all allowed this to lapse. Well it is back for Term 4.

Parents we do ask that you assist us here. There are many reasons why a uniform is beneficial and we would really appreciate it if you made sure your child has their uniform on when coming to class. Help your child be proud to belong to Stepnout Performing Arts.

We have variations on the uniform to cover the different styles that we have on offer at Stepnout Performing Arts.

We have the burgundy t-shirt, burgundy leotard, burgundy skirt, black t-shirt for older students and the Black Hoodie for winter. Leggins, dance pants and shorts are all black. there is no variation on colour here. To find out the appropriate uniform for your child’s class see the uniform page on the website, ask your teacher or the office staff.

See you all soon!
