class attire

all dance shoes must be labeled with dancer's first and last name.

tiny toes & combo classes: Dancers may wear their choice of a leotard and tights (with or without a skirt), or comfortable “movement-friendly” clothing. Ballet shoes should be leather or canvas ONLY, with leather or suede soles and an elastic strap across the arch. Slip on satin shoes without elastic are meant for dress up only – their soles slip off the foot too easily. If your ballet shoes have an adjustable drawstring, please tie the string in a double knot and cut off all excess at the base of the knot, or secure the strings to the underside of the shoe with a piece of strong tape – this saves us a LOT of time in class by not having to re-tie shoes! Black tap shoes (patent leather style preferred) will be worn for Tap Combos. Leather ballet or jazz shoes may be worn for Jazz Combos. Jazz shoes or clean sneakers may be worn for Hip Hop Combos. There is no shoe color requirement for class, but those doing ballet in the spring recital will wear pink shoes, jazz, tap, & hip hop combos will wear black shoes.
