BCDA Uniform Policy

Berwick College takes pride in the appearance of our students and therefore it is part of our policy that all students must be in full school uniform at all times, including the Berwick College Dance Academy students.

The uniform should be worn correctly, neatly and in clean condition. All students from Years 7 – 12 are expected to wear full school uniform. Uniform is to be worn from the time the student leaves home to the time the student returns home.

Please refer to the link below to see a full list of the required College uniform:

Uniform and Student Dress Code 2019

As we have a strict uniform policy at Berwick College, students are only able to arrive in the BCDA uniform for period zero classes. At all other times BCDA students are to arrive in proper school uniform and get changed in and out of their dancewear before and after class. Changing rooms are provided in the Performing Arts Centre. Students must arrive already changed for the commencement of class which means they will get changed at the end of recess or lunch.

Dance Bags

If students require a separate bag for dance this should be kept at a small size to fit in the students allocated locker.  Bags are not to be taken to classes other than dance. If a student’s dance bag does not fit they are able to leave them in the Performing Arts Centre before school but will not gain access to it until 10 minutes before their dance class.

Hair, Jewellery and Make up

All students are required to have their hair pulled back and off their faces. Neat buns or high ponytails are recommended.

Students can only wear sleepers or studs and cannot wear watches, rings or necklaces during classes as this can be a safety issue for the student and other dancers. Students will require diamanté studs in their ears for performances.

Students are not required to wear make up for classes but will be for performances.
