T-shirt or Tank Top Loose Fitting Pants or Shorts (non-restrictive)
Shoes ~ Nike Tanjun (black shoe, white sole, white check)
These shoes can be purchased from Nike.com. This shoe is mandatory for all KDF hip hop classes and will be used as part of their costume for the year end show. If you have a clean pair of last year’s shoe (the Nike Roshe), those will be acceptable for this year as we transition into the new shoe. The transition is happening because the Nike Roshe from last year has been discontinued. The Nike Roshe and Tanjun are very similar looking shoes.
All Hip Hop groups require this shoe. Senior Hip Hop Group and Senior Hip Hop Line may require a different shoe if the costume requires it – your instructor will confirm with you.

Outdoor shoes are strictly prohibited from being worn in the studio. No blue jean or denim of any kind.
Hair in ponytail.

EQUIPMENT LIST FOR PBT (PROGRESSIVE BALLET TECHNIQUE
• A fit/Swiss ball for the required size for your height (see below for sizing details)
• Small hand ball (pink ball, tennis ball, or a soft massage ball)
• Medium ball (Soft ball 22”or 54cm in diameter. Try Walmart kids toys!)
• Resistance band, Medium strength, 9 feet in length. (This is a lot longer than the off the shelf bands. I will look into providing an economical solution for the students. We won’t use them for a few weeks.)
• Pilates or Yoga matUsing your height to size up your ball:When you stand next to an exercise ball, it should be even or slightly above your knee level. The best way to size up your ball is by sitting on it. When you sit on the ball, your knees should be bent at a 90-degree angle and your thighs should be parallel or even with the floor. Find your height and see which ball size you should try first.The following chart shows a slight variation of recommended heights for the different ball sizes you can choose from:

Height Ball Size
Under 4’8″ (142cm) 45cm
4’8″ to 5’3″ (142 to 160cm) 55cm
5’4″ to 5’10” (160 to 178cm) 65cm
5’11” to 6’4″ (178 to 193cm) 75cm
