It is the dancer's body that is his/her tool during a dance class. Therefore, it is necessary that appropriate attire be worn so that the instructor may properly observe and correct movement and placement of the dancer's body. Each type of footwear is uniquely designed and fitted to assist the dancer in performing and executing each style of dance. The instructor reserves the right to prevent a student from participating in a class without the proper shoes.
All required dance attire and shoes is available through the Dance Gallery. To keep costs down and for convenience only samples of all styles and sizes of shoes and dancewear are kept at the studio for fittings. Orders need to be prepaid and are placed on Mondays for delivery in 3-5 business days. You will soon be able to place your orders online for home delivery. The targeted date for this service is September 1.
