There will be a placement class on the first day of each session at BBSI North Carolina (Session A: Monday, August 5th, 2019 and Session B: Monday, August 12th, 2019).  


Ballet Classes: Fitted white t-shirt, black footed tights, black ballet shoes, dance belt

(No: tank tops, cut off tights, flesh-colored shoes, white ballet shoes, or white socks).  Please note: If suspenders are sewn on tights, suspenders must be worn under the t-shirt.

Weight Training: Loose fitting shorts or sweatpants to wear over ballet attire, dance belt, t-shirt or tank top of choice, sneakers. Please note that sneakers are mandatory.

For BBSI North Carolina, We request that the men bring a braided resistance band (click the link for an example) for Weight Training. The level of resistance depends on the dancer’s age and strength level. If the dancer previously attended BBSI, re-assess resistance on the band to determine if a heavier resistance is needed for this year’s session. Men should also bring a standard theraband for this class.
