Dancewear and shoes can be purchased from specialty dance stores like Movin’ Easy, Dancer’s Closet or the Capezio store in addition to places like Target (doesn’t sell shoes just dancewear), Walmart, Payless and Academy. The most important thing when buying shoes is fit, they shouldn’t be too big and especially not too small or too narrow. The inexpensive brands that Walmart, Payless and Academy sell do not come in widths so it is recommended for narrow or wide feet to purchase shoes at one of the specialty stores.
A cover-up is required when outside the classroom, hair worn in a pony tail & put names in all shoes. Please no panties under tights, no food, gum or drinks (except water) allowed in the waiting areas and dance rooms & no jewelry. Dancers should bring a dance bag with their dance shoes, outside shoes, coverup and water bottle into the room for their dance class. Dance shoes should NOT be worn outside.
