The Marguerita Hoare School of Dancing



To be correctly dressed for class is an integral part of the young dancer’s training.

The uniform helps make the class a special activity and gives the child a sense of belonging.

It also teaches them the importance of a tidy appearance when faced with exams, auditions and interviews.
