Where Can I Purchase Dancewear & Shoes?


We have various sizes and styles of dancewear, leotards, tights and shoes available for purchase at the studio. Our front desk staff will help size your dancer so they get the correct dance attire that is appropriate for our classes. We do not have all dance shoes in stock. Most dance shoes will need to be ordered at the studio and take approximately one week to come in. We also have a dancewear website which features leotards, tights, dance accessories and select dance shoes. We have pre-selected merchandise that is approved for each style of class. All items will be offered at a discounted price, for members of our studio only, and will be shipped directly to your home.
