BALLET PREPARATION LIST

We strongly suggest that you bring everything you need stay. Although you will have easy access to stores near your residence, and will have opportunities to shop at The Rock Boutique, it is our experience that life is much easier for those students who do not have to worry about running out of necessities.  Student’s name must be permanently marked on all clothing and personal belongings.

CLOTHING

Dressy clothing is needed only if you will be attending religious services
or an event at which dressy clothing is appropriate (the dinner cruise or the Broadway show).
Don’t forget bathing suit(s), bathrobe, light jacket or sweatshirt, casual shoes, and socks!
