Okay, so...where do you wear it? High, mid, or low? Well, not to get too personal but how old are you? Unless you're performing on-stage and there is a specific design to your hair for a role, the general rule of thumb is:
The older you are, the lower the bun.
Young kids, from toddlers through young teens, maybe 12 or 13, can wear their buns very high. Like this:

But once a dancer matures and has the ability to pin her hair herself, from the age of 12 or so, the mid-level bun is a preferable style. Like this:

Once a dancer reaches the age of 35-40, she should start lowering the bun toward the nape of her neck. This is not to say she isn't performing or working any less hard than younger dancers but a lower bun is a softer look, not quite so severe. Like this:
