It is important to wear the correct uniform for all dance classes.  This allows for freedom of movement and lets the teacher see correct carriage of body and use of the arms and legs.  Hair should be tidy, ideally in a bun with minimal 'decoration'.  Having the correct shoes and uniform now will allow you to be prepared should an exam be entered for.

All our uniform is now available from Dancia International in Datchet. 


We still have some stock available directly from the school and a small amount of second hand items.

You are also able to order direct from Helen on a Saturday morning Purple Onesies and  Black Hooded Jackets with the Sholen logo and name printed on.

Purple Skinny fit t shirts for our senior students also printed with school and child's name.

Please make sure your children have the correct uniform.  If it is not Sholen they may be asked to remove it!


We understand and accept other items may need to be worn in special circumstances, but please remind your child to apologise to the teacher at the beginning of the class. 

          Remember to name all your clothes and shoes!
