Class Attire

Dance Shoes & Attire
We are pleased to offer high-quality, professional dance shoes at extremely low prices. Upon registration for ballet, tap, or jazz, you can try on the shoes using our sizing kit, and place an order for your necessary shoes. (NOTE: These shoes will be required in these dance styles for next year’s recital). In keeping with a spirit of excellence, we will be enforcing our class dress code. Upon registration you will receive a detailed list of what dance attire is acceptable for all styles of dance. Inexpensive leotards, tights and ballet wrap skirts can also be purchased through our studio.
