Dance attire for these classes: 

  • Flexible clothing, pant hems at shoe line or above, hair pulled back.
  • Tap shoes with screws countersunk, with non-marking soles (such as brown, caramel, tan, or white). Tap Shoes should fit like a good pair of walking shoes, fitting snugly on the heel and with room in the toe box for toes to stretch. As prices can vary, we recommend buying shoes that fit your budget.
