Tights and Shoes Needed For Both Recitals

 Shoes will be needed for everyday practice, but recital tights do not need to be ordered right away (start with practice tights or leggings first)


**New this year for the 2021/2022 Season - dancers can now be fitted through the studio the first few weeks of class and then we will order the shoes for the dancers. Dancers are more than welcome to order their own if they would like, we just wanted to let everyone know we will now be offering this service. :) 

  • Preschool Dance and Tumbling - pink ballet shoes and pink tights.

  • Mini Ballet/Tap - light suntan tights (convertible are always nice) and black tap shoes, pink ballet shoes will be needed for weekly practice (but not for the recitals). 

  • Jr Ballet Jazz and Tap - light suntan tights (convertible are always nice), pink ballet shoes and black tap shoes, tan jazz shoes can be used for practice as well, but are not required.
