WE RECOMMEND TAN CONVERSION TIGHTS.

WHERE TO PURCHASE DANCE WEAR & SHOES:

IN AUGUST, WE HOLD MULTIPLE DAYS FOR ENROLLMENT/SHOE FITTINGS.  WE HAVE KITS TO SIZE YOUR CHILD FOR THE SHOES TO ENSURE AN ACCURATE FIT.  YOUR CHILD WILL RECEIVE THE SHOES ON THE FIRST DAY OF HIS/HER DANCE CLASS. THE INSTRUCTOR WILL MAKE SURE THE SHOES FIT AND IF THEY DO NOT, WE WILL REORDER THE CORRECT SIZE.  THIS IS MUCH MORE CONVENIENT AND COST EFFECTIVE THAT ORDERING ONLINE AND PAYING SHIPPING FEES AND RETURN SHIPPING FEES. WE HAVE A SMALL STOCK OF DANCE SHOES AND ATTIRE AVAILABLE BUT WILL ORDER ANYTHING YOU MAY NEED.

FOR THE 2017-2018 DANCE YEAR, HIP HOP WILL BE OFFERED AS A WORKSHOP.  IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED IN PURCHASING HIP HOP SHOES, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD ATTENDS IN CLEAN-SOLED SNEAKERS TO PROTECT OUR DANCE FLOOR.
