Dance Class Dress Code

Often when a dancer puts on a costume for the first time, their dance really comes alive.    It helps them transform into the character they are meant to be and can take their performance to a new level.  In the same way, dressing appropriately for class helps our dancers be focused and give their class work the respect and effort it deserves.

(We don't carry half soles but you can buy them here.)  If you have any questions about what is required for your specific class please shoot us an email :) (more…)
