OSDA Dress Codes 2023-24

Dancers must be in proper dress code for all classes. Option 1 is traditionally feminine while Option 2 is traditionally masculine. If any dancer is uncomfortable with the dress code because of religious, health, or gender expression reasons, please speak with the director and accommodations can be made. 

Dancewear must be purchased from a dance supply store, or ordered from the Academy.  We do an order at the beginning of each session. RAD Ballet uniform info can be found at the bottom of the page.

Preschool/Primary/Beginner Highland dancers who are not competing can wear black leather ballet shoes instead of highland shoes. If you want to order proper highland shoes, contact the Academy and we will send you a link.
