Karen Blackburn Dance Academy


All classes for KBDA require a uniform – although this is not expected until a student has fully registered for the term.  Uniform will vary between classes depending on the genre being taken.

In addition to regulation uniform we also have our own logo uniform which can be worn in some classes and is very popular as outerwear. It is also used when students are representing the school at any exhibitions or festivals.
