Uniforms - "A tidy dancer is a focused dancer!"

Please ensure your child attends class wearing the correct uniform and dance shoes, even in non-syllabus classes. Uniform creates an identity and sense of belonging but it also encourages discipline. Dancing is fun and enjoyable but also requires discipline to ensure everyone in class receives a high standard of teaching. Uniforms serve to remind students that there are rules to follow and respect.

KPSD is lucky enough to have its own uniform shop KMR Dancewear run by Karen Rogers. You can contact Karen for advice or submit an order via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 07505 606534.  The price list is displayed at the Moravian Church and she stocks uniform, shoes and other dancewear.  You can also collect an order form from your child’s teacher and return it to them. Your order will be delivered to your child’s class. Karen ensures there is a selection of sizes available to ensure a good fit. Payment should be made by cash or cheque in an envelope marked for the attention of KMR Dancewear and handed to the dance teacher. Karen also holds regular Dance Shops at the Moravian Church.
