WHERE TO PURCHASE DANCE WEAR & SHOES:

AS SOON AS YOU ARE ENROLLED, YOU MAY BRING YOUR CHILD TO DEEJAY AT STUDIO ONE TO GET FITTED FOR SHOES.  WE WILL ALSO HAVE LEOTARDS AND TIGHTS FOR SALE OR SPECIAL ORDER.  WE PREFER REVOLUTION DANCEWEAR.  THESE TIGHTS ARE THE BEST AND SHOULD LAST FOR MANY WEARS.  REVOLUTION ALSO HAS SEAMLESS LEOTARDS THAT ARE VERY COMFORTABLE.

FOR RETURNING STUDENTS:

IF YOU KNOW WHAT SIZE YOU NEED, YOU ARE WELCOME TO USE OUR ONLINE DANCE STORE!  www.shopnimbly.com/studioonealtus  BE SURE TO WRITE IT IN…COPY & PASTE DOESN’T ALWAYS WORK.  THESE ARE THE SAME REVOLUTION DANCEWEAR AND SHOES YOU ARE USED TO BUT NOW YOU MAY ORDER AT YOUR CONVENIENCE AND YOUR ORDER IS DELIVERED TO YOUR DOORSTEP.

NOTE – WE WILL NOT BE FITTING SHOES THE FIRST WEEK OF DANCE.  THE INSTRUCTORS DO NOT HAVE TIME!  PLEASE PLAN IN ADVANCE BY GETTING YOUR CHILD FITTED, ORDER ON YOUR OWN OR LET YOUR CHILD GO WITHOUT THE FIRST WEEK OR TWO.  SHOES ARE SECONDARY, YOUR CHILD IS FIRST!
