Uniforms & Dancewear

Please note that the uniform is compulsory as this ensures dancers are appropriately dressed to participate effectively in class.
Wearing the correct uniform enables students to perform movements without clothing restrictions or distractions, allows teachers to more easily identify alignment issues to correct, and enforces a more professional attitude which translates to the quality of their dancing.
Please note that this extends to having the correct dance shoes and hair done for each class.
You will find your uniform requirements for each dance style listed below.


All uniform requirements can be ordered directly through Miss Rose. We use a mixture of NZ and offshore suppliers to ensure the best quality at affordable prices. For any questions or to book a fitting contact us.

We also have a range of special Rose Academy dancewear including T-Shirts, Hoodies, Track Pants, Warm-up Booties 

and other dancewear merchandise available.


Please note that there is a lost & found bin in the dressing room; if you lose something please check here first.

All found dancewear and other clothing will be stored here for the remainder of the year.

Any dancewear not claimed by the end of the year will be washed and made available to purchase second-hand. Any other clothing will be donated to a local clothing bin. We recommend naming your clothing to avoid any issue.
