What to wear and bring


Wearing a uniform creates a sense of identity and belonging within the studio. By offering a range of styles to choose between we ensure your dancer feels confident and happy in class. Having a dress code cuts down on distractions in the classroom and allows the teacher to see a dancers alignment and posture in order to make corrections

To keep this task simple we have given all of our studio’s uniform requirements to Sue’s Shop, 871 Old Cleveland Rd (Cnr Gallipoli Rd) Carina. PH 3398 5106. The staff at Sue’s Shop know exactly what is required for every class at The Dance and Theatre Factory and can expertly fit you for whatever you choose. Just mention to the staff at Sue’s Shop that your child is enrolled at The Theatre Factory and what classes they are doing.

Some customised uniform items used for examinations and external performances are available from the studio. Please check in to see what is available. Click on the link below to download the pdf of uniform requirements.


Water Bottle – filtered water is available at the studio to refill water bottles

Notebook and pen/pencil – to keep track of feedback and make notes

Folder – for sheet music

Snacks – students who attend more than 3 classes will have a scheduled break and should bring dinner or snacks as appropriate.
