slhogan Posted March 8, 2006 Report Share Posted March 8, 2006 My son's teacher has told me that for modesty reasons my son needs to cover up his ballet clothes when he's outside the studio (This is her policy for the girls as well). He wears form-fitting leggings over a sleeveless white leotard. He's a typical little boy in that he HATES changing clothes and can't see the need to change clothes more than a couple times a day, so once he puts those ballet clothes on he really fights the idea of taking them off again before bedtime (and he'd prefer just to sleep in them as well). Tired of fighting him in the dressing room after class, I began wondering if this is a common rule among studios. Do your boys dress/undress at the studio or are they permitted to just wear their ballet clothes out "on the street"? Do they wear a cover-up over their clothes? That's an easier option for the girls as their tights are so thin under pants or they can just pull on a dress, but it's hot and bulky to pull jeans over his leggings and weird looking to have those black leggings sticking out under shorts. Obviously, it's easy to pull a Tshirt over his leotard and he does do that, but covering up those leggings are a more difficult challenge so for now I guess he'll just have to put up with changing clothes after class.
