• Uniforms & Costumes

    Uniform Policy:

    Here at Nicky Jenks we like our students to be in uniform at all times. This helps the students with their discipline and helps them feel ready to engage and focus in class, as well as looking great. It is also important to help teachers in class, help students with the right technique correct alignment.
     
    All uniform can be purchased from the following 2 websites. Please ensure you purchase the correct colour leotard for your child in relation to their Ballet Grade. If you unsure please speak to their teacher.
