* If last year's shoes are painted & still fit, you can wear them.

* Please put child's 1st & last name in each shoe(once you have teacher's confirmation that you have the correct shoe style/fit).

Shoes that are required to be painted to match recital costumes can be worn the following season.

DRESS CODE & HAIR

     Students should always have proper dance shoes and clothing. The weather cannot be used as an excuse. The dance rooms are kept at a consistent temperature year round. We believe that "if you look like a dancer, you will feel like a dancer."
